Subject: Problem in HTML specs

One clear error that I see countless times is an innacurate use of the id
element when defining styles.  It is constantly being treated as identical
to class, ie:
	<STYLE type="text/css">
	H1.wood {text-align: center}
	<H1 id="wood"> How to Carve Wood </H1>
(from the HTML spec on alignment [1], the third example given below the header)

"id" should be replaced with "class", right?
