Hi there  :)

I have a small suggestion for a fix of the
The specifications states that '[]' can't be used for
HTML-element's NAME and ID. That is not reflected in
the validator.

Very often I have discussions with other
PHP-programmers about the issue, and they always say:
"The validator doesn't complain, so why should I

The validator is often considered 'the law' (which of
course is a great and well earned compliment to the
creators and maintainers of this great piece of
software) - not the specifications.
Seen in that context, I believe that the validator
should reflect the rules laid out in the
specifications, so I wonder if it is considered a bug
- or if it is on purpose.

If it was up to me, it would be corrected - but please
correct me if I'm wrong  :)

Please keep up the good work, Guys!

Venlig hilsen
/Best regards
