xslt thread: Combobox and checkbox problems

Message #1 by "David Dyer" <davidjdyer@b...> on Mon, 24 Jun 2002 10:04:15
> HTML uses SGML-style abbreviations; the familiar <OPTION SELECTED> is an
abbreviation for <OPTION SELECTED="SELECTED"/>. These abbreviations are
not available in XML, you need to generate the full attribute name and
value. The serializer will turn it into correct HTML.
