Error in HTML4.0 spec

There is an error in your HTML4.0 spec document. There is a line that
gives an
example of the use of http-equiv:

<META http-equiv="refresh" content="3,http://www.acme.com/intro.html">


This should be :

<META http-equiv="refresh"
content="3;url=http://www.acme.com/intro.html">

as far as I can deduce from other sources. Your version does not seem to
work,
atleast in netscape v4.06.

In general the syntax for the use of the http-equiv attribute
does not seem at all clear from your document, and links to
sources describing these would be useful.

With best regards,
