Well, it /is/ still required by the HTML 4 spec. If you look at a
rendered .aspx page, you'll see that the action attribute is
populated. I just played around with it, and (following the
observation above) the value that is coded in the form at design-time
/is overwritten/ during rendering. So for those of us doing .NET
development, ya might as well forget about it. Which sucks. I don't
like losing that kind of control. I'm sure there's a way to get the
form to post elsewhere, but I haven't done the research....
