Hi All,
 I have a giant form in my HTML, which is generated dynamically by a JSP. The page is divided into many blocks (tables), and links at the top of the page for each of these blocks.
 I am using <a name="1"> etc. for the links. They are working fine in IE, but in @#$#$ Netscape, nothing happens when the link is clicked on. I have tried with quotes, without quotes, with # in name without # in name.. nothing works! any pointers?
TIA,
Ananth

are the <a name ..> tags inside the table, then it will not work (on some browsers) 'cause it's not w3c standard :-(

name should not begin with a numeral.
Try <a name="a1">

ahosang is right. No object, tag or variable should ever start with a number. It's one of the rules in programming ;-)

I had given the <a name...> tag inside a <tr> but outside <td>! I put it inside the <td> and it now works fine!!
danke hoffmann!
Nice points from the others too, but I guess numbers do work here...

according to w3c, name= and id= must start with a letter, so CJ_S is right too.
Auch danke ;-)
