ISSUE-17: ARIA 7 has a link to the wrong name calculation <input> rather than <a>

ARIA 7 has a link to the wrong name calculation <input> rather than <a>

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML & ARIA Techniques TF
Raised by:

Description:
ARIA 7 has a link to the name calculation, but it is the name calculation for an input field. Scrolling down takes the user to a section that says "all other elements", with a link to the calculation in the ARIA 1.0 Standard. It would be more accurate to point the link there directly.

We could just change the anchor to the id of the specific part
i.e. change to
