Hi,

When using the ID tag or Name tag to refer to items such as <tr> 
elements
(or any multiple element) the validator fails if the ID tag is 
duplicated.
This might be required so that the items in question may be referred to 
by
index i.e. myRow[1] etc. As you well know that when two or more items 
on the
same page have the same ID or name they can be referenced by index in
JavaScript.

I think that this should be allowed.



Regards,


Stephen J G Jones
