I checked the FAQ, but could not find an answer to my question.

Is it possible to generate a link to a specific post in a thread (as opposed to the entire thread)? I would be quite content with a link that takes the browser to the page containing the thread and jumps to the location of the specific post.

thank you,
- Anand

No. There aren't a midpage anchors to link to.

Jeanne is selling the Saloon a bit short - there are indeed anchor tags for individual posts. They have the form "000000" for the initial post, and then "000001" and so on. You can see them by looking at the page source. So to link to this post of mine, append "#000002" to the Saloon URL.

I don't know that this is a FAQ, but it has come up before, so I added an entry to the http://faq.javaranch.com/java/JavaRanchFaq

Ulf,
Thank you for the correction! I did look at the HTML a couple times. Mainly when something changes and the book promotion winner program breaks . Turns out I forgot the details and should have looked again.
