           Summary: tell us if id or name attribute's value has leading
                    pound sign when it shouldn't

  Target Milestone: ---

One of my URLs was wrong because the fragment identifier failed to match the
value of an id attribute in my *.htm page and the reason it failed to match is
that on my page I had used the hash mark as the first character of the value.
This was my fault, but I suspect it's not an uncommon error. It would be
convenient for page authors, if you find a match except for an excess leading
hash mark in the link, if you tell us about that specific error. It will help
us to feel stupid faster and to correct our link destination faster. The same
would apply to a name attribute, even though that has been mostly deprecated
lately.

Possibly relevant is bug 37. For this bug report, I guessed the component and
the version; the version is actually 4.81.
