Adding anchors to steps in HTML output

You can add anchor tags to steps that will be assigned as the "id" property in HTML output. This can be useful for linking directly to specific steps when you share a Clarify document to the web.

For example, if you set the anchor name for a step to "special-step" and your Clarify document was exported and available at the following URL:

http://www.myblog.com/my-clarify-article.html

then you could link directly to the step by adding #special-step to the URL:

http://www.myblog.com/my-clarify-article.html#special-step

Note: If you don't specificly set an anchor for a step then Clarify will generate one automatically based on an internal id that Clarify assigns to steps when you create them. This anchor will remain the same each time you export the Clarify document.
