This is an article about an example

and then elsewhere Link to article about example.

Did you try in Chrome or Opera and did they work in them? Bizarre and interesting. how does xcolor's \color work? So if they both happen appear in the anchor then the ID wins the fight and forces the NAME into complicit submission regarding the values.

There are two anchors on the page and 2 links. That appears to have solved it. So your current links are looking for an id in the same page they are on rather than your target page. In HTML5 name="" is obsolete (you should use id="" instead, can be used on any element).

Anyway, it's academic at this point since the attribute shouldn't be used in the first place, as you say.

No text node: Code: Text node: Code: Foo The power of the Web is in its universality. Email Address CSS-Tricks* is created, written by, and maintained by Chris Coyier and a team of swell people. Link 1 for anchor 1 and link 2 for anchor 2. Have you run it through a validator?

Second point: I still don't understand what you mean by a text node. Thanks BestWeb 2016-06-08 21:37:27 UTC #19 Using the full URL also seems to have helped... Will have a look at the containing DIVs to see what can be done. name="" is of type CDATA, not NAME or ID.
