There is a form example in
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/interact/forms.html
(twice the same):

   <FORM action="http://somesite.com/prog/adduser" method="post">
      <P>
      <LABEL for="firstname">First name: </LABEL>
                <INPUT type="text" id="firstname"><BR>
      <LABEL for="lastname">Last name: </LABEL>
                <INPUT type="text" id="lastname"><BR>
      <LABEL for="email">email: </LABEL>
                <INPUT type="text" id="email"><BR>
      <INPUT type="radio" name="sex" value="Male"> Male<BR>
      <INPUT type="radio" name="sex" value="Female"> Female<BR>
      <INPUT type="submit" value="Send"> <INPUT type="reset">
      </P>
   </FORM>

There are no name attributes in text controls, so they can't be
successful controls. I think that was unintentional.
