The link is contained at this position (row, column). After having closed the page or document open trough this link, the cursor should be re-positioned at least in the row/col containing the link (not precisely on the link itself if it is preceded by a text, a small logo, or by anything else. If it is possible, what is the best way to do it?

Adding to Nancy's reply, you could place a button on the linked page that, when clicked, will do the same as the browser's back button. The code is simple as per

<input type="button" value="Go Back From Whence You Came!" onclick="history.back(-1)" />

I'm not sure I understand the problem.  Can you post a URL to what you mean?

My browser's back button (backspace key) returns me to the starting location -- last link clicked.  I make it a practice to avoid opening new windows / tabs unless itt takes users to an external URL that's not on my domain.  In such cases, closing the new window  / tab has no effect on the parent window  / tab.
