Sorry, I forgot one point that Ian Hixie made in comment #20 - that if you only
issue the warning about @action="" when <base> is present, the author may be
unaware that simply adding a <base> could be problematic. Therefore, perhaps
the validator should issue a warning whenever it finds @action="". This warning
might be nuisance for the many legitimate cases of @action="" with no <base>,
but it is much better than issuing an error IMO.

Thanks again.
