I think this is because of ``<A ID="OMITTED" NAME="omitted">'' in that
document. The values of the id and name attributes are case-sensitive, and
must be identical if both are present; therefore the document is in error.
I assume that the link checker uses the value of the id attribute if it
exists, only using the name attribute if there is no id attribute.
