At page
it states that 
	On the a and map elements, the name attribute has been removed in
favor of the id attribute 
	(as defined in [XHTMLMOD]). 

I believe this should read "On the a, form, img, and map elements, . . ."


(1) In the specification of XHTML 1.0, at page
it states (section 4.10) that
	HTML 4 defined the name attribute for the elements a, applet, form,
frame, iframe, img, and map. 
	HTML 4 also introduced the id attribute. Both of these attributes
are designed to be used 
	as fragment identifiers.
	. . . 
	Note that in XHTML 1.0, the name attribute of these elements is
formally deprecated, 
	and will be removed in a subsequent version of XHTML.

(2) XHTML 1.1 documents that DO use the name attribute with form or img
elements do not validate with the W3C validator.
