On the other hand, the table implementations out there have probably
been built in some relation to the set of tags (I dare not say the
actual content models) of some now-obsolete version of Dave Raggett's
table model, in which TD may have an ID attribute. Try using that
instead of an A and see what happens.
One point of IDs is that they are potential link targets; if they're
specified as SGML IDs then each ID value must begin with a letter.
HTML's A tag's NAME is specified as an ID in the Recommended mode
(somewhat futilely), and as CDATA (looser rules, best to quote these
