1.	The links to the
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/interact/forms.html#edef-OPT
ION> OPTION element at the section
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/interact/forms.html#h-17.6>
17.6 The SELECT, OPTGROUP, and OPTION elements point to the section heading,
which is misleading. They should point to the OPTION element definition
instead. 
2.	The section
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/appendix/changes.html#h-A.3.
9> A.3.9 Changes for forms does not mention
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/interact/forms.html#adef-val
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
<http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/tabular.html#op
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
recommendation.
