(Just to be needlessly nitpicky, the HTML id attribute is actually in  
the null namespace, not the HTML namespace - attributes that are part  
of a language are not normally namespaced.) But what Allan said is  
basically right. And it's tricky to figure out the right behavior for  
languages that both have a native id attribute and support xml:id,  
the spec is not very helpful in this regard.
