The HTML specification says that the content of the name attribute can
not contain spaces. FP is wrong, here, I am afraid, and the validator is
right. You'll have to get rid of this if you want you page to validate.

Please note that w3schools are NOT affiliated or related to W3C. And in
this case, they also happen to be plain wrong. Since you are already
using CSS, you would benefit from moving this background declaration to
your style sheet anyway.

Hope this helps,
