Objects are identified either by the NAME="..." HTML tag attribute or by the ID="..." HTML tag attribute.

Netscape Navigator shows a marginal preference for the name property while MSIE seems slightly better disposed towards the ID property. However in many cases, both browsers support either technique and in some cases will locate items named with either tag as if they existed in a single namespace.
