Associating Hidden Infomation with an Anchor
Mon, 6 Nov 95 04:38:55 CST

I'd like to associate some arbitrary hidden information with an anchor
end-point (for automatic generation of pointer indexes, for example).

Two techinques come to mind:

1) <a name=job1234 my_values=ohio:drive-in:cook>


2) <a name=job1234> <meta content=ohio:drive-in:cook>

(1) uses an undefined attribute on the grounds that browsers ignore such.

(2) uses a HEAD element in the BODY on the same grounds.

Neither are kosher. What is the "right stuff"?

Cheers, Scott
