I see somecode like this :
<input type="submit" value="submit" id="submit" name="submit">

tell me the difference between ID and NAME ???  :) Thanks !

as far as i know "name" is being deprecated to be replaced by "id".

That's right. The ID tag is the "new" thing. However old browsers don't recognize the ID attribute, so it's not a bad thing to place both ID and NAME in elements if you're aiming for maximum accessibility.

"ID" is the XHTML replcement for name... i think it's called depracation or something. You will want to use both the Name and Id attribute until XHTML has fully replaced HTML, so that older browsers will be able to handle it.
