HXNAME2ID(1)			HTML-XML-utils			  HXNAME2ID(1)

NAME
       hxname2id - move	some NAME and ID attributes from an A to its parent

SYNOPSIS
       hxname2id [ -x ]	[ file ]

DESCRIPTION
       The hxname2id command reads an HTML file	and looks for elements with an
       A element as first child, with no intervening text  other  than	white-
       space.  If  that	 A element has an ID or	NAME attribute,	it is moved to
       the parent element and removed from the A.

       Because Netscape	4 doesn't understand  ID  attributes,  it  was	common
       practice	 to  write  <H2><A  NAME="sect7">...</A></H2>  instead	of <H2
       ID="sect7">. This program can be	used to	convert	such old HTML files to
       the new convention.

       Other  programs	in  this  suite, such as hxmultitoc(1),	require	IDs on
       headings	instead	of A elements with NAME	attributes. So it is useful to
       run   hxname2id	prior  to  running  hxmultitoc	and  similar  program.
       hxname2id can be	used in	a pipe.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -x	 Use XML conventions: empty elements are written with a	 slash
		 at the	end: <IMG />

OPERANDS
       The following operand is	supported:

       file	 The  name  of an HTML file. If	absent,	standard input is read
		 instead.

DIAGNOSTICS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0	 Successful completion.

       > 0	 An error occurred in the parsing of the HTML file.  hxname2id
		 will try to correct the error and produce output anyway.

       xml2asc(1)

BUGS
       The error recovery for incorrect	HTML is	primitive.
