Ticket #8542 (closed defect: fixed)
EIP edit box does not display ID of tables as it does for other elements

Noticed this when trying to show a user how to create dynamic links to tables . . . in most elements, such as <para>, the EIP edit window displays (in fixed, white text as part of the opening tag) the element's ID. This makes it easy to identify in order to set up links, etc. However, the <table> element does not display the ID, requiring the user to go into full-source mode (or a parent tag's editor) to find the relevant ID. This is problematic, especially for relatively new users not comfortable with full source mode, and discourages the use of dynamic references.
We need to tweak the interface so that element IDs display for tables, and confirm that this is not a problem for other elements as well.
Putting in "Hot Fixes" for lack of a relevant short-term milestone, but feel free to reassign as appropriate.
