I came to this same conclusion after reading the specification for the FORM tag.
Hmm. I just skimmed through that specification, and couldn't see how you came to that conclusion.

There seems to be three uncorrelated elements:

  1. Whether the form parameters to be sent can come from both the action attribute and the form elements themselves (unclear in the spec)
  2. Whether those parmeters are encoded using GET or POST methods (selected by the form's method attribute)
  3. Whether the CGI processing agent should interpret query-string parameters in addition to content parameters when using the POST method (not specified at all in that referenced spec - that would be in a CGI spec)
Did you read something I didn't?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
