The id
attribute is a Core attribute and may be applied to any tag (I am not certain
about the <html>, <head> or some of the other tags that appear in
the <head> section so for the time being, forget about those). You may use
the id to apply style or&nbsp;as a hook for scripting. For example, if you are
using tables for layout, you could create <td id="navbar"> and then create
styles based&nbsp;on the id such as&nbsp;td#navbar a:link {color: red;}. Yes, DW
is correct.

<SPAN
style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Is it wrong to use id attribute in
<td>? I found this to be needed in a complicated table, but I&#8217;ve never
seen this. Dreamweaver shows this attribute in its intellisense, but I want to
make sure if it&#8217;s OK to use this
way.
