Subject: HTML 3.0 FORM Message-Id: <MICHAELJ.firstname.lastname@example.org> From: email@example.com (Michael Johnson) To: firstname.lastname@example.org (HTML discussion list) Date: Fri, 16 Dec 94 08:52:14 EST The HTML 3.0 DTD for FORM reads: <!ELEMENT FORM - - %body.content -(FORM) +(INPUT|SELECT|TEXTAREA)> If I understand this right, this means that INPUT, SELECT and TEXTAREA would be allowed *anywhere* inside a FORM, which would seem to be undesirable to me. For example, you would not want something like this to be legal: <TABLE> <TR> <INPUT type=radio name=joe value=blow> <TD>foo <TD>bar </TABLE> Would it be better to revert to the HTML+ way of doing things, and make INPUT, SELECT and TEXTAREA part of the %special entity? Unfortunately, this would allow INPUT, SELECT and TEXTAREA to be used outside of a FORM, but I think this might be the lesser of two evils. Of course, I could be reading this wrong, in which case "never mind". Michael Johnson Relay Technology, Inc.
