[TxMt] Quickie HTML named anchors

I had to whip this up this morning for a site that had a ton of named  
anchor tags.  There may have been something previously but I missed  
it.  If you highlight the text to link and hit CTRL-SHIFT-A, it will  
give you a dialog with a suggested name for the anchor.  Confirming  
the dialog after any necessary modifications will create the href  
link to the anchor and copy the name of the anchor to the clipboard.   
Then you place the cursor or highlight the text to become the anchor  
and hit CTRL-SHIFT-A again.  It will create the anchor from the  
clipboard.  This makes for rapid index development.

The only drawback is that my current system of using the same  
keyboard shortcut twice means if you hit undo after pasting the  
anchor you lose the clipboard and have to start that anchor over from  
the beginning.  It may be wise to separate the two functions, but I  
didn't want to take up more shortcuts than necessary ;).
