Table of contents problems

I'm trying to link to files with anchors in my table of contents. I have something like this somewhere in a book2.xhtml file:
Code:
<a name="chap12">Chapter 12</a>
In my TOC.ncx file I have something like this:
Code:
<navPoint id="toc22" playOrder="22">
  <navLabel>
    <text>Chapter 12</text>
  </navLabel>
  <content src="book2.xhtml#chap12"/>
</navPoint>
My Sony reader and library do not work with this, they just open the next xhtml file instead. Calibre seems to accept it though. Am I doing something wrong?

The "name" attribute is not valid in XHTML, use "id" instead, and not in an anchor element (<a>), i.e.:

Code:
<h1 id="chap12">Chapter 12</h1>
for instance. But apparently the Sony has problems with fragments (the "#" part in the href) in the NCX file, so it's better to avoid them if you can.

Thank you, that did the trick. It seems to work well on my Sony.

The reason I need anchors is that I don't want to split my chapters into different xhtml files. I don't want the chapters to appear on a new page each time. Is there a way to do this with split chapters? That way I could avoid using anchors.
