Dear Colleagues,

Problem:

W3C HTML 4.0 standard implies <IMG ID= is OK but <IMG NAME=
is not allowed.

Netscape (NS) 3.03 and 4.05 software recognize and use
<IMG NAME= but ignore <IMG ID= . 

Suggestion:

Adjust HTML standard to allow future browser products to
accept <IMG NAME= as a synonym for <IMG ID= and allow both
keywords (as in <IMG NAME= ID= ) if both values are
identical. 

Rationale:

Allow HTML written now to work better with future browser products
and future HTML standards.

Sincerely,
Charles A. Finnell
