Hi I was testing out a simple page (i am learning CSS/DHTML but also was trying out client side image maps)

I was surprised that it flagged FORM NAME since Javascript names are fairly routine for many tags.

I can reluctantly agree that ACTION is required, but that would be only for server/mailto POST/GET, and again not required for javascript.

I'd love your feedback on this, if not to also include it in your DTD?
