Error in HTML 4.0 Specification

To whom it may concern:

I reported this error in the spring and it (seemingly) was never resolved.
In the section on the META element, you report the "proper" way to
"refresh" is as follows:

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

when this is in direct contradiction to the real proper way to accomplish
this; the way that it has always been accomplished in the past:

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

Please fix this at your earliest convenience.  TIA!  ;-)
