------- Comment #1 from ville.skytta@iki.fi  2006-11-24 17:51 -------
The target document for the fragments,
http://www.amd.com/us-en/Weblets/0,,7832_11104_11106,00.html , has a XHTML
doctype declaration which causes the link checker to parse the document in XML
mode, which is case sensitive.

The target document uses quite a few uppercase tag names, also in the
"consumer" case:

    <A name="consumer"></a>

"A" is not a valid XHTML element, and therefore the no anchors are searched
within its attributes.  Changing "<A" to "<a" could work around this particular
problem, but the document source looks like it could use more thorough XHTML
fixes (eg. starting with lowercasing a lot of things) to prevent other future
surprises.
