HTML issues tagged as name.
<meta> tag has been found that is either malformed, or in a bad place within the document. Check its attributes and context.
For example, the following HTML contains a valid
<meta> tag that is raising an issue because of bad context, caused by an
<img> tag that shouldn’t be there:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang=""> <head> <title>Test</title> <img src="photo.jpg" alt="A smiling cat" /> <meta name="description" content="Description of this page" /> </head> <body> <p>Some content</p> </body> </html>
If we fix that document and move the
<img> tag within the body, the issue raised about
<meta> disappears because it’s now in a valid context:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang=""> <head> <title>Test</title> <meta name="description" content="Description of this page" /> </head> <body> <p>Some content</p> <img src="photo.jpg" alt="A smiling cat" /> </body> </html>
In the days before HTML5, named anchors were used as a way to provide a link to a specific section of a document, for example:
<h2> <a name="section-5">Section 5</a> </h2>
Now in HTML5, the
name attribute is obsolete for
<a> tags, and instead, you can use the
id attribute of any element (not just
<a>) as a way to navigate directly to it, for example:
<h2 id="section-5">Section 5</h2>
