Possibility to link directly to a specific tab in a recommendation

You can now link to a specific tab (e.g Decision aids, Rationale or Practical information) in a recommendation, by using a suffix on the guideline link. 

The recommendation links opens up in Key information tab as default (if it has content, if not it opens up in the Rationale tab, Summary of findings, Practical information or Adaptation- tab)
If you add a specific tab suffix, you can force the recommendation to open in a specific tab when user clicks the link. Here are the suffixes to use:

/sof = Summary of Findings/Evidence tab
/da = Decision aids tab
