You were dreaming. :-) There's no syntactic element that allows you to
define a spot on a page to jump to that I know of. However, you could
create your own markup to accomplish this and put the code to
implement it in local.php.  (You could also propose your markup be
added to "standard" pmwiki too)

I think it's just a local modification in local.php to $PageHeaderFmt
Something like:

$PageHeaderFmt = "... \$Group ... \$Title ...";

where the ... are whatever other HTML you desire.  The dollar signs are
back-whacked because otherwise they'd be interpolated immediately
rather than at the time of page generation (as the *Fmt variables are
supposed to do)

See http://www.pmichaud.com/wiki/PmWiki/PmWikiSetupFaq and the other
PmWiki pages for more info.

You can't do that to my knowledge.
