Below is a snippet of my xhtml1.1 code. When I validate, I get the
following error:


Line 40, column 29: ID "menulink" already defined

<td><a id="menulink" href="">Tools</a></td>

An "id" is a unique identifier. Each time this attribute is used in a
document it must have a different value. If you are using this attribute
as a hock for style sheets it may be more appropriate to use classes
(which group elements) than id (which are used to identify exactly one
element). 

  * Line 37, column 29: ID "menulink" first defined here

<td><a id="menulink" href="">Tutorial</a></td>

  * Line 43, column 29: ID "menulink" already defined

<td><a id="menulink" href="">About Us</a></td>
