Also, when I click on the link above, it doesn't follow down the page to the anchor. I'm not sure why that is. Gerald?


Just a few days ago I learned that this is a "feature" in current
versions of texinfo: apparently XHTML disallows characters like "*"
at the beginning of an anchor, so makeinfo now prepends some magic
string.

If "*-*-solaris2*" should appear as/in the "name" attribute of an <a>, prepending a name start character is not enough, because this attribute is of type NMTOKEN. Therefore it cannot contain * at all.

If international character sets in XHTML are o.K., maybe there are
some letter sets to choose from. Here is a sample.

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd";>
<html>
<head>
<title>No * in NMTOKEN</title>
</head>
