Tutorial :Difference between title and name in html href element



Question:

in an href in html, whats the difference between using

<a href="http://www.somesite.com/" name="The Name">  

and

<a href="http://www.somesite.com/" title="The Name">  

Is there any advantage to using one over the other?

Thanks


Solution:1

Look it up in the spec, or better yet a resource that condenses the spec a bit. (And, then the spec if that isn't enough.)

title   text    Specifies extra information about an element  

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_a.asp

The name attribute specifies the name of an anchor.

The name attribute is used to create a bookmark inside a document.

The href or the name attribute must be present in the tag

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_name.asp

So, the name of the anchor is used for links like exampledomain.com/index.php#some_section, which would bring that anchor into focus on the page.

Many modern browsers will display the title attribute in a tooltip when hovering over the link. It's likely also useful for screen readers and such.


Solution:2

markup tag Node - Name -- is to identify the element and for lookup - title -- is default toolTip property. like ALT
