It passes validation, but running Weblint on it reveals that there
are some A elements with start tags "<a>". Those elements, with
some context around, are:
 <h2><a name="h-3.1">3.1</a> <a>Introduction to SGML</a></h2>
 <h2><a name="h-3.2">3.2</a> <a>SGML constructs used in HTML</a></h2>
Although "<a>" formally conforms to the DTD (I assume one cannot express
rules like "this element must have either attribute X or attribute Y or
both" in SGML), it's probably a mistake, since it makes little sense
semantically - and some browsers might be unprepared to handle it.
