Default One page, two validation questions

The page in question is


The W3C validator grumbles about two things:

<a name="PROBLEMS/FIXES"> etc ...

It WAS griping about this when there was a literal "/" character in the same place, so I rewrote the code (as it suggested) to replace it with the entity code. Now it doesn't like THAT. Shouldn't it treat &#xxx; references strictly as text? Bug in the validator, perhaps?

If this really isn't allowed, I can fix it in the code that generates the references automatically but don't want to bother with that just to satify the appetite of a manylegger in the validator.


And next, it complains about what I think is a legitimate problem.
But this is long enough. I'll start another thread. <g>
