You're right, if the "href" attribute is escaped and the "name" attribute
isn't, the results won't match up (in IE5). I'll change Saxon to escape
both, as implied by the second note of Section B.2.1 in the HTML spec. If I
do this, they match up correctly.
You still have the problem that if you are using id rather than name
or if (as recommended in xhtml 1.0) you are using both, then still they
don't match up and you can't % encode id attribute values as % isn't
a name char.
