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

Netscape 4 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. Netscape 6.0 is DOM based and works well with ID values.
