Question

From: <historysoul@earthlink.net>

To: <www-validator@w3.org>
Message-ID: <C95EEAA7.B2BE%historysoul@earthlink.net>
Hi.  Upon validating, the error messages that come up repeatedly are:
  

value of attribute "ID" invalid: "_" cannot start a name
<img id="_20s_30s">
It is possible that you violated the naming convention for this attribute.
For example, id and name attributes must begin with a letter, not a digit.

I'm assuming this means I cannot have the underscore in front of the number,
but when trying to remove it, I then get an error that it cannot begin with
a number.  Also in the HTML tidy version, it gives me the same thing as I
had.
Id appreciate any help with a solution, this is all that needs fixing
according to the validator.
Thank you!
