Remarks on the HTML 4.0 Specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40)
=======================================================================

17.2.1 Control types (interact/forms.html#h-17.2.1)
---------------------------------------------------

- checkboxes

  ' ... A switch is "on" when the control element's selected attribute
is set. '
                                                    --------
Remark:

  Because 'selected' is an attribute of the OPTION element, 
  this should be written as:

  ' ... A switch is "on" when the control element's checked attribute is
set. '

  The related link should be: "forms.html#adef-checked"


17.4 The INPUT element (interact/forms.html#h-17.4)
---------------------------------------------------

- DTD

  value       CDATA          #IMPLIED  -- required for radio and
checkboxes --
                              -------     --------
- Attribute definitions

  value = cdata [CA] 
        This attribute specifies the initial value of the control. 
        It is optional except when the type attribute has the value
"radio". 
              --------
Remark:

  'IMPLIED', 'required' and 'optional' are used contradictory. This 
  could lead to different implementations.
  The default value 'on' is supplied by IE 4.x and NC 4.x for both 
  control types (checkboxes and radio buttons).
