Re: Speaking of "Skip to" links

In XHTML, the name attribute is deprecated and is replaced by id (except
forms where name is required for associating data with a field).

In the past, we created Link to Summary and
that linked to . However, instead of <a
name="summary">, you use id such as Summary.

I don't know if something we can't do. Empty anchor tags do validate,
at least for the versions of html that I use. I don't know about xhtml.
I think it's just a personal qualm on my part.
