The woven-specific attributes should really all be removed -- any that
are left in are just there because I have been lazy about it, since as
you observe modern browsers don't care. I'll try to go through and make
sure woven outputs clean XHTML by the next release... I have been
meaning to do it for a while anyway.
The tendency for woven to overwrite ids you try to set has been fixed
in CVS. Also, since several people have requested it, I will remove the
auto-id setting unless you are using LivePage, which is the only thing
that uses it.

I would consider these bugs, and thanks for the report!
