How to link to part of the same document in Markdown?

Github automatically parses anchor tags out of your headers. So you can do the following:

[Custom foo description](#foo)

# Foo

In the above case, the Foo header has generated an anchor tag with the name foo

Note: just one # for all heading sizes, no space between # and anchor name, anchor tag names must be lowercase, and delimited by dashes if multi-word.

Works out of the box with pandoc too.
