Tutorial 13: Giving Form to Forms - HTML with Style | 16
- This is a block element (but see below)
- May contain block-level elements and form controls. Cannot be nested.
- Both start-tag and end-tag are required.
- action (URI)
- The URI that is used for form submission.
- method (get or post)
- The method used for form submission, get or post
- enctype (Content type)
- The MIME content type that should be used for encoding the form data when it is submitted. The default is application/x-www-form-urlencoded. An alternative is multipart/form-data when sending files (see below).
- accept (List of content types)
- A space- or comma-separated list of MIME content types that may be sent (as files) when submitting the form.
- accept-charset (List of character sets)
- A space- or comma-separated list of character sets that the form data may be in. The default is the character set of the document.
- Identifier and classification attributes
- Language information attributes
- Inline style information attribute
- Title attribute
- Intrinsic event handler attributes
The descriptions of the various attributes may seem a little puzzling for now, because they have to do with how the form is submitted, and we haven't talked about that yet. Here's a brief explanation.
