Has Moziila (1.2.1) and Opera (7.0) stopped supporting anchor names

<a name="#top"></a>
<a href="#top">Top</a>

There are docs around on using ID, but none that say <a name> is a depreciated element. The descritons on ID are pretty weak. Searching forums for "a name" gives some pretty wacky returns!

It validates as 4.01 and works in IE. In Mozilla, it works only if the <a name> is defined in the html prior to a <a href> call. Opera is nada...
