You can look at the archive in . In the message file, you see the lines
<li><strong>Messages sorted by:</strong> 
<a href="date.html#50">[ date ]</a>
<a href="index.html#50">[ thread ]</a>
<a href="subject.html#50">[ subject ]</a>
<a href="author.html#50">[ author ]</a>
<a href="attachment.html">[ attachment ]</a>

and in the thread index file

<li><a href="0050.html"><strong>RE: Mighty Orinoco ad</strong></a> <a name="0050
"><em>Mark Eckell <small>(Mon Jan 27 2003 - 21:21:20 IST)</small></em></a> </ul>

This is different in the other index files: {date, author, subject}.html all have a <a name="50"> anchors.

The files do not display the version of hypermail used to generate them and I should recify this. However, I generated them using the hypermail version I installed, and hypermail -V gives me "hypermail: Version: 2.1.6 Patchlevel: 0". I don't use a .hmrc file, but rather run

hypermail -i -p -x -c $tmp.0

where $tmp.0 consists of the isix lines

hm_ihtmlheaderfile = $tmp.1
hm_ihtmlfooterfile = $tmp.2
hm_mhtmlheaderfile = $tmp.3
hm_mhtmlfooterfile = $tmp.4
hm_dir = $year/$month
hm_domainaddr =

and all the headers and footer files are dynamically generated.

I apologize that I specified NAME in uppercase in my bug report, rather, then name in lower case.
