	8) I'm not sure that the new name <select1> is better than the
old <selectOne>. Same issue with <select> and <selectMany>.
The HTML Working Group requested that we honor their convention of
having all lower-case tag names, to facilitate integration into XHTML.
The select element is general (0 or more) and so "selectMany" is
misleading; renaming it "select" fixed both problems.
The select1 element requires select of exactly 1 item, but the name
"selectone" is difficult to read, so we chose the numeral "1", as a
clear indication of its difference from "select".
