[whatwg] <input name=isindex>

Submission of an <isindex> element is different compared to normal
form submission with a text input element, only the value part is
submitted.

This parsing definition:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#isindex
means that <form><input name=isindex></form> also should only submit
the value part.
And indeed, that is what IE7 seems to be doing.
Mozilla even has a bug filed for this:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93795

So I guess this needs to be mentioned somewhere in the web forms spec
or something?

Regards,
Martijn
