Sorry I guess I was forgetting that HTML can be validated just as well.
However, whichever way one validates, RelaxNG or whatever, XHTML 5 (and
HTML 5?) will still define it as an ID type, no?
This concern was brought to mind when looking at
simply suggests using "id" instead of "name" (some might just think they
can simply switch the attribute and not the value).
