Why are you using name? Backwards compatibility?
Does anyone know if the need for name is still a pressing backwards
compatibility issue?

BTW. There is no need to use the <a> element when you are using id, you can put
the id onto any element in the content. I prefer to put it on an element that
encloses the entire section that I'm referring to by the fragment, adding a
<div> element if necessary - though sometimes I get lazy and put them on the
<h2>, <h3> or whatever <hX> tag I'm using for the heading of the section.
