 Hi,

Within XHTML documents, the name attribute value must be duplicated into the 
id attribute. So the following restriction is applied:

"ID and NAME tokens must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]) and may be followed by 
any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), 
colons (":"), and periods (".")."
