I have some trouble trying to understand this error:

Line 43, column 17: the name and VI delimiter can be omitted from an 
attribute specification only if SHORTTAG YES is specified

<option selected value='25'>25 descriptions per page</option>

A snippet of the code from the parser:

  39: <th><form method='post' action='/virus.cms'><div><select 
name='MaxRows'>
  40: <option value='250'>250 descriptions per page</option>
  41: <option value='100'>100 descriptions per page</option>
  42: <option value='50'>50 descriptions per page</option>
  43: <option selected value='25'>25 descriptions per page</option>
  44: <option value='10'>10 descriptions per page</option>
  45: </select>

If desired you can see the results through 
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://viruspool.vanderkooij.org/virus.cms

The name field is part of the select tag. But I could not find any 
reference in the HTML 4.01 document which allows a name field in the 
option tag.

Hugo.
