The only difference is that XML (and thus XHTML) requires that you specify a value if you specify the attribute. XHTML does not impose any extra requirements on what the value is.

It's must either be multiple="multiple" in both or in neither.

    It does, actually. See the DTD:

    <!ATTLIST select [...] multiple (multiple) #IMPLIED

    That defines the 'multiple' attribute as having an enumerated set of possible values. Though in this case, there's not much enumeration to the set :)

    EDIT: Actually, on re-reading, I guess I may just be agreeing with you...
