the browser don't actually "pretend" there is a link.

All they are doing is interpret the given CSS definition
that tells them how to visualize the <a> element.

I'm not sure in how far one may already write distinct
CSS code for <a href="..."> vs. <a id="...">; I think
there is a way to do so in CSS2, but the browser support
for this might still be a little sloppy (I believe to
remember Mozilla already supports that, but MSIE? n.d.?).
Still, this would mean it's the author's "fault" then
if he _specified_ the <a id="..."> element to be visua-
lized as if it were a link.

Regards, Michael
