Subject: popup_menu
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 444b
I have been using CGI for a while now but I just noticed that when I use popup_menu with the -default=> option I get this rendered in HTML <option selected="selected" value="4">The Pythian Group</option> where the proper html is <option selected value="4">The Pythian Group</option> doesn't seem to cause too many problems except when I try to use JS to acceess the selectedIndex of the object I can't until it is changed by user action.

After a little more digging into the CGI.pm code I discovered that when the value # Set this to 1 to generate XTML-compatible output $XHTML = 1; on line 45 is set to 1 the selected="selected" value. If I set $XHTML = 0; I get the corret HTML. So I guess this might not be a bug after all. [guest - Thu Oct 6 08:32:38 2005]: Show quoted text

I'm marking this old bug as rejected, since the reporter decided it wasn't a bug himself.
