I've got a question about creating a link to a webpage.

I know that if I want to have a link "auto scroll" to a specific point on a page with a number, I can use a link like this that has the "number" after a "#" symbol, for example: http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=STANDARDS&p_id=9880#1910.303(g)(1)(i)

But... does anyone know if there is a way to have a link auto scroll to a particular string of characters that are not numbers?

For example, let's say I wanted to create a link to the following page and have it scroll down automatically to "Appendix A", anyone have any ideas if this is possible or how to do it?
http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=DIRECTIVES&p_id=1817

Appendix A is near the bottom of the above page.
