I made a WordPress Codex page: Plugin API/Filter Reference/wp link query args « WordPress Codex.
So I ran across an issue today when creating a custom admin menu and submenu items. I wanted to have a submenu item in the menu that linked to the main admin menu page, but did not have the same anchor as the parent.
