1.	The links to the
ION> OPTION element at the section
17.6 The SELECT, OPTGROUP, and OPTION elements point to the section heading,
which is misleading. They should point to the OPTION element definition
2.	The section
9> A.3.9 Changes for forms does not mention
ue-OPTION> the following innovation: 

If OPTION value is not set, the initial value is set to the contents of the
OPTION element.

The  <http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html32.html#select> HTML 3.2 Reference
Specification does not mention this at all. (The
tion> OPTION section of the HTML5 draft is not ready yet so it is uncertain
what it would say). Microsoft Internet Explorer does not fulfill this
