This (a database interface) does bring up another issue. Let's say I have
a database where one of the elements is a large piece of text (e.g., a
bug report). You cannot currently represent this with forms. Why?
Because when you try and put the "VALUE" in <INPUT SIZE="64,30"
VALUE="...50K of text..."> I'll bet just about every parser we have is
going to break. The "easy" way around this is to define a new input tag
that is a container
<h2>Bug report contents</h2>
default text in container
I'll leave it to the SGML folks to solve this problem (which I believe
is important). Attributes in SGML are next to useless. Note that you
could it like this:
That way, browsers that don't understand INPUT would still show
the textual content and get an idea about what was going on.
