Hello all,

I was validating a file on the W3C HTML Validator. The only errors I got
were for the use of the name attribute in the IMG and FORM elements.
According to the HTML 4.01 spec, this attribute is kosher. (See
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/objects.html#edef-IMG and

The file was uploaded from a local drive, so I can't give you the URI.
If it helps, here are some code snippets:

<img src="n_images/b_news.gif" border="0" alt="News & Events"
name="nav1" width="108" height="36">
<form name="seek1" method=GET accept-charset="iso-8859-1"

Is this an error in the validator? 

I am not a subscriber to the list, so please cc: my address if you have
any questions or comments for me.
