According to this:
http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F

w3.org validates Strict.  But, in the source code I found this:

<h2 class="newsHeading"><a name="news" id="news" shape="rect">News</a></h2>

I thought NAME was replaced by ID in Strict doctypes, making NAME no longer valid?


Also couldn't you have archived the same effect with less code if you did this:

<h2 class="newsHeading" id="news">News</h2>
