off-topic: if you link to footnotes, provide a link back to the place I was reading.

Does any website do that? Does the back button not work well enough?

Wikipedia does. Unfortunately pg's essays don't, which is a shame, because it would help the reading experience much.

I've seen that many times. back button sends me to where I was scrolled, not where my eyes have been. a link to the anchor sends me exactly to the line I was reading.
