           Summary: I cannot find an explicit statement about XML
                    compatibility of empty attributes. In former XHTML
                    standards, the syntax used to be <input
                    checked="checked".../> Now with the implied value ""
                    of empty attributes, the syntax is <input checked=""/>
                    as I under

Comment:
I cannot find an explicit statement about XML compatibility of empty
attributes. In former XHTML standards, the syntax used to be
<input checked="checked".../>
Now with the implied value "" of empty attributes, the syntax is
<input checked=""/>
as I understand it. This should be stated explicitly in the appropriate
sections to avoid confusion.
Please let me know whether my interpretation is correct: aquapuma@msn.com
Thank you very much for your work!
