I'm working on a glossary type page with lots of a name="term" tags that I can link to from other pages. However these tags arn't validating XHTML1.1 ?! Is there a new way to go about this?

The Changes ( in XHTML 1.1 ) from XHTML 1.0 Strict are clear on the removal of the name attribute. But, you can use the id to create some named anchors.

Actually, XHTML1.0 started out by the demand that only id should be treated as a fragment identifier. The removal of the name attribute in all cases where it was used as a fragment identifier is just a logical consequence. Note that the name attribute is not removed for form controls, as it served another purpose there.
