Changed in HTML 4.01 to:

<BLOCKQUOTE>
        Consider the URI that designates the W3C Technical Reports page:

             http://www.w3.org/TR

        This URI may be read as follows: There is a document 
        available via the HTTP protocol (see [RFC2616]),
        residing on the machine www.w3.org, accessible via the path
"/TR".

It shouldn't be name. It should be class.
