I have begun trying to validate pages to 4.0 transitional standards using
various online validators. I have run in to a particular problem. In using
javascript rollovers, the image is identified by "name=" . HTML 4.0 wants
you to use "id=" but that doesn't work with Netscape or older IE versions.
I keep getting validation errors because of this. Since "transitional" is
supposed to take into account the current state of 4.0 browsers, shouldn't
this validate? Is it a choice between validation or your page working in
the real world?
