I came across a certain problem with html anchors:
Each "name" and "id" attribute is generated out of each headline. But
names/ids must not begin with a digit! All other forbidden characters
are caught with the help of cleanID().
The question is: What should be done? Should the digits just be omitted?
Or should those anchors have a certain letter prefixed? ('x'? Or 'n'?)
It's also a question of usability. It could confuse users to see an
anchor "ways_to_do_it_better", whereas the headline clearly reads "3
ways to do it better" ... Okay, bad example. But I bet you can imagine
worse scenarios ...
But then again ... they're just anchors, and not that important ...!?
