Hi,

does anyone know if HTML name attributes can contain URIs?

IOW: is this valid (X)HTML?

<form action="http://ex.org/subject" method="POST">
<input type="text" name="http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#label" 
size="30"/>
</form>

The browsers seem to do it, but I cannot find a reference that supports 
(or negates) this.

The HTML DTD defines the 'name' attr as CDATA, but I am not sure how 
much that means in WWW reality.

Thanks if anyone knows a definite answer to this.

Jan
