Hello Arnaud,

In the section on the FORM element, the accept-charset is
listed [1].  Right after the discussion of accept-charset
is a paragraph that implies that the FORM element can
also be used with an ACCEPT attribute.  However, the DTD
does not list FORM as being allowed to use ACCEPT as
an attribute (only INPUT).

While I'm writing, the LINK element can take a TYPE attribute
so as to define the MIME type for a linked stylesheet.  However,
when one clicks on the TYPE attribute's definition in the page
about the LINK attribute [2], one is taken to a completely
different section (in the forms document, which isn't relevant).
Instead, one should be taken to [3].

[3] http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-html40/present/styles.html#adef-type-STYLE

Is it still worth it for me to submit these error reports?
I haven't heard anything back about my last one.  If you're
close to publishing the revision, and if you've received most
of my reports already, then I will wait for the next draft
to appear before reporting further mistakes.

I know it's a massive job that you're doing and I appreciate
all of your hard work and wish you the best of luck.
