In the Policies Relating to Web Accessibility Document there is a  
validation error.

There is an anchor in the US section that goes to Section 255 for  
example and has an id of 255.
<a name="255" id="255" shape="rect">(USA) Section 255 of the  

It is not XHTML 1.0 Transitional to have an id attribute that starts  
with a number.

It would be easy to take out the id and have it validate but I don't  
know if that would affect the use of the anchor.  The anchor could be  
changed but that would affect any references to the anchor in any  
other documents.
