Usability: Clickable heading links
The folks at have the - in my eyes - best solution to the problem: When moving the mouse over a heading, a ¶ is shown after it. It is linked, and you can click it or copy it's link easily. Try it.

How to implement it​

Within the h[1-6] tag, a link to this very heading is added - without any textual content, to make it invisible when the page loads and the CSS is not there yet:

<h1 id="hexdump">hexdump<a class="anchorlink" href="#hexdump"></a></h1>
Via CSS, the pilcrow is shown as :before the link:

h1[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before {
content: "\00B6";/* pilcrow */
That's basically everything you need.


I styled the link and the alinea a bit, so that in the end my CSS looks like:

/* show IDs for anchors */
h1[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before,
h2[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before,
h3[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before,
h4[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before,
h5[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before,
h6[id]:hover a.anchorlink:before {
content: "\00B6";/* pilcrow */
color: #888;
font-size: smaller;
a.anchorlink {
text-decoration: none;
margin-left: 0.5em;
font-size: smaller;
