Let me give another example in the same syntax: <P><A href='http://www.usc.edu' target='#here'>USC</A></P> <DIV id='here'> Please, don't make me go!! . . . </DIV> Notice this is the same syntax but it has a very different meaning. I suppose it could be thrown out as illegal. But there seem to be cases where it is legal as well: <P><A href='http://www.isi.edu' target='#here'>USC-ISI</A></P> <OBJECT id='here' href='http://www.usc.edu' /> The rules for legality are fairly tricky. And just to be the devil's advocate, let me throw in this one: <P><A href='http://www.isi.edu' target='#here'>USC-ISI</A></P> <OBJECT id='here'> This is some content that will be shown when this page first loads. . . . </OBJECT> Andrew n marshall student - artist - programmer http://www.media-electronica.com/anm-bin/anm "Everyone a mentor, Everyone a pupil"
