Nothing apparently wrong with your test file; this must be a
bug in Arena.

Hi There,
I'm trying to determine what is and is not supported by HTML 3.0
as far as forms go. Here's an example:
--------------- start paste --------------

TEST: This Is Only A Test

We`re testing FORMS under HTML 3.0

Type in some text here:

--------------- end paste --------------
Arena 0.96 tags this page as "bad HTML". Any suggestions? The specific
line it`s choking on is the <TEXTAREA line.

On another note, I noticed that the HTML 3.0 draft has wording in it to
support client-side scripts, but does not specify the scripting language.
Is anybody working on this or was it put in to solely to support JAVA? Are
there any other languages available for this purpose?
