Nesting <A> elements is not permitted, but <A NAME=bar HREF="http://foo/">
should be ok.

The Cougar draft lists the ID attribute for every element, so I would
think that you can, under that draft, link to fragments by ID rather
than NAME. 

It gets interesting when you have a NAME and an ID of the same value,
for example to be compatible with both new and old browsers. This is
probably syntactically legal, but where should a browser jump to?
