Comment:
Authors should ensure that in each set of radio buttons that one is initially
"on".      Because some have made bad UI choices  you should not recant this
rule! At all times, exactly one of the radio buttons in a set is checked. 
Radio button Only one item in a group can be selected.    The Radio name comes
from the mechanical push-button group on a car radio receiver.    Selecting a
new item from the group's buttons also deselects the previously selected
button. Only the selected choice should be accessible using the Tab key.  The
Radio control should be used to choose "one" option from a set of mutually
exclusive choices "at all times". I beg you not to back set on good UI because
other do not know better!  Andrew Arnone andrew.arnone@hartfordlife.com
