I have another separate element on the page (a table element), which happens to have the same ID as my anchors NAME. So, the link that is supposed to jump down to my ancor "foo" instead jumps to the table element with ID "foo" (which is further down on the page). Firefox is confusing ID's with NAME's. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create link at the top of your page that links to an anchor in the middle of your page 2. Create an anchor tag in the middle, with NAME="foo" 3. Create table element later in the page with ID="foo" Actual Results: Link jumps to end of page where I have a table element with ID="foo" instead of to the middle of the page where I have an anchor with NAME="foo". Expected Results: Jumping to middle of the page, not the end.
Probably INVALID See: http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/links.html#h-12.2.3 , which covers more or less exactly this situation. "The id and name attributes share the same name space. This means that they cannot both define an anchor with the same name in the same document."
