hi JF
thanks for your response
though i'm not sure if i'm understanding correctly.

this seems to be a pmwiki issue.
if i go into, say dreamweaver, and create the anchor as desired, using
	<a name="àdroite" id="àdroite"></a>
it works correctly: the anchor doesn't display, and any link#àdroite  
leads to the right place

but [[#àdroite]] seems to cause pmwiki to spit out
<a href='#àdroite'>#àdroite</a>
