(1) X Mosaic 0.8 doesn't jump to internal links inside documents like
    it should anyway; this is already fixed for 0.9.
(2) X Mosaic 0.9 won't behave any differently with your document,
    unless you've got a really small window, since all of the text is
    already in the window and there's nothing to jump to -- anchor
    local is already being displayed.  And what's the "cursor" you're
    referring to?  Not the mouse pointer??

BTW, <t> isn't HTML.

What other behavior did you expect?
