Name is not defined for img in either HTML 3.2 or HTML 4.0.  It is only
defined in 4.01.

That references the HTML 4.01 spec.

Bugs in the validator are usually markup problems in your page.  That is
not to say that the validator doesn't ever have a bug, but if I had a
nickel for every time someone discovered a bug in the validator which
actually turned on to be their bad markup, I'd be pretty well off :-)
