To Roberto Scano: Thanks for pointing out that the name attribute for
the anchor element has been disallowed in XHTML 1.1. Do you recommend
using a different attribute that would serve the same purpose?

Roberto Scano:
The problem that we are also discussing in the italian web accessibility
list is about this.

using:

<a href="#notizie">notizie</a>
...
<div id="notizie"><h2>Notizie</h2>...

is good for XHTML 1.1 but this could cause problems about backward
compatibility (and we need to check with the screen readers).
