But the value of the name attribute of a form element is not a NAME token.


'name = cdata [CI] 
'This attribute names the element so that it may be referred to from style
sheets or scripts.'

followed by the note I quoted previously.

On the other hand, the value of the id attribute *is* a NAME token, so is
restricted as per your quote above.
