on pages like function specification etc, arguments are clickable links

Currently, site uses jquery to perform a smooth scroll to the respective section, when such link is clicked.


1) There's no any fallback mechanism in place!

This means, that you cannot disable javascript to avoid experiencing animation/effect - because then such links will not work.

These links SHOULD be made standard A elements, linking to the respective section, using standard mechanism (i.e. <A href="#arg1">$str</A> ... <A name="arg1"/>$str - .....)

So that users could at least opt for disabling javascript.

2) In fact, using framework for smooth scroll is outdated
Smooth scroll is a built in option in modern browsers.
So, actually, the standard anchor is ALL that is needed, and the jquery scroll SHOULD be removed altogether.
