    So, do I still use:

    <a href="page1.htm#here">Click here</a>

    while using:

    <a id="here">Bookmark</a> ?

    It's just name exchanged for id, is it?

    Thank you.

    Yes. The only time you could be using name is for forms.

    In fact, you don’t need anchors as – well – anchors, you can link to any element with an ID. For example:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    	<head>
    		<title></title>
    		…
    	</head>
    	<body>
    		<div id="container">
    			<div id="header">…</div>
    			<hr />
    			<div id="content">…</div>
    			<hr />
    			<div id="footer">
                                …
                                <a href="#container">link</a>
                            </div>
    		</div>
    	</body>
    </html>
    The link would make the page jump to the element with ID “container”, e. g. the top.

    Wait.. you shouldn't use an extra anchor tag to specify the target of another anchor. You may set the id attribute on any element, and target it using an anchor with #<id> in the href. See http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/links.html#h-12.2.3

    1.The <a> tag in html code is an Anchor Text Tag. The following example will provide some common uses of the <a> Anchor Tag.

    In html you begin the <a> Anchor Tag with:

    <a href=”http://yourdomain.com”>

    You close the html Anchor Tag with:

    </a>
    The end of this 1st step looks like this:
    <a href=”http://yourdomain.com”>Your Anchor Link Text Goes Here</a>
    This is one way that this anchor text Hyperlink will finally look (Could Depend on Cascading Style Sheets-CSS):

    Your Anchor Link Text Goes Here

    Cut & Paste the following into your html editor and modify the information:
    <a href=“http://yourdomain.us”>Change the Domain URL then place your Keyword Rich Text Here!</a>
