Hello,

>May the instance node referenced by upload contain initial data?
Yes.

>may the instance node referenced by upload/filename contain an initial
filename
Yes. It is, however, *just* a filename. Nothing in the spec says to access
the file or to put its contents into the instance data.

Thanks,

Hi,

May the instance node referenced by upload contain initial data?

More importantly,
may the instance node referenced by upload/filename contain an initial
filename (for example when editing a record may it hold the 'current'
filename)?

And if a default filename is allowed should this file be uploaded even
though the user has not actually picked a file for upload? (guess not)

The HTML 4.01 spec allows input[@type='file'] to contain a value attribute
holding a default filename. But I have only seen this implemented in
Opera (for security reasons I guess).


thanks,
-Kurt.
