Hi there--

	I've found what I believe to be a bug in the HTML validator. It
doesn't seem to understand the "name" attribute when present in <IMG> tags
(e.g. for use in JavaScripts). Try this:


The only error this yields is:

Line 147, column 124: 

       ... "dk1();"><img
       src="/images/unlit.gif" alt="" name="lite1" border=0></a ...

     Error: there is no attribute "NAME"

It says that there is no attribute "NAME", but there most certainly
is! (By the way, this problem occurs with BOTH the 3.2 DTD and the 4.0
Transitional DTD)

Please consult:


As you can see, there is most definitely a "name" attribute.

Isn't this a bug? If so, can it be fixed as soon as possible?
