Hello. Andrew Fry and I are writing a user-friendly, beginning- to
intermediate-level guidebook about publishing on the Web. We have a basic (and
probably even simple) question that we hope you will help us with.

We note in the HTML spec dated 10/13/94, section 3.6.3 on Anchors, that the
value of the NAME attribute is not enclosed in quotation marks within the <a>
tag. We've seen numerous uses of anchors in the source code of existing Web
documents, however, that do use quotation marks around a NAME identifier.

Are we correct in assuming that it will work more or less equally well either

Thanks. We'll very much appreciate your answer.
