HTML5 ListView Page Jumping

Hello Experts.

I have a glossary type page that uses the standard page jumping technique. I am tasked with rewriting the page to fit HTML5 standards, which then rules out the name attribute of an anchor tag.

My question: How would I dynamically set the id attribute of an anchor, generated in a listview, to allow for page jumping?

Ex: Old code
 
<a runat="server" name='<%# Eval("ColumnID") %>'></a>

Open in new window

This worked because name accepted non static values. With the name attribute being deprecated, I must use the id attribute to achieve jumping. The id attribute only accepts static values.

Any help you might provide would be appreciated. Thank you.

Can't you just remove the runat="server" from there?
<a id='<%# Eval("ColumnID") %>'></a>

Open in new window

Why do you need the anchor to be a server-side control?

I am new to the web side of things, and did not realize that was even relevant to my issue. Thanks.
