NAME="..." (HTML Tag Attribute)

An HTML tag attribute that names an object.

Many objects are identified in the DOM hierarchy of the web browser by means of their name property. This value is defined as an HTML tag attribute.

Some objects can be accessed using an ID="..." HTML tag attribute instead of ,or as well as, the NAME="..." HTML tag attribute. With browsers converging on the DOM specification and its Nodal structure, the NAME="..." HTML tag attribute is expected to become deprecated in favor of the ID="..." attribute.
