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


       hxname2id [ -x ] [ file ]


       The hxname2id command reads an HTML file and looks for elements with an
       A  element  as  first  child,  with  no  intervening  text  other  than
       whitespace.  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.


       The following options are supported:

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


       The following operand is supported:

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


       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.

       The error recovery for incorrect HTML is primitive.
