When using <input type="radio" name="splitLocation" value="convert" 
checked="checked" />, the radio is not checked unless the last (W3C XML /
XHTML-compatible) / is removed.  This makes the browser non-XHTML compatible.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a form with a radio button
2.For the default button, make well-formed with quotes and checked="checked"
3.Add a trailing slash - not checked, remove it - checked.  Magic!

Actual Results:  
No checked radio button.  When submitted, the radio button parameter is not
present.  I got unhappy.

Expected Results:  
Checked the radio button goddammit!

That testcase worksforme in a build from last night.  Does it not work for you?
 If it works, please post a testcase showing this bug.
Hmm... both pages workforme with a Dec 2 linux nightly.  Is this bug
Windows-only?  Or Firebird-only, somehow?

They both work for me, on all the variations of Seamonkey to which I currently
have access: Windows 1.4 release; Linux 5th Dec build; MingW 1st Dec build.
Worksforme with a Windows 2003-12-28-17 SeaMonkey build as well.  Sounds like
this is firebird-only.

WFM on Firebird too. Back to Core. Can we get a much smaller testcase? Does this
work with more recent builds of Firebird? Do we have any prefs that might affect
this? What skin are you using? Do you have any extensions installed? Can you
give us a screenshot of the buggy behaviour?

If it works with both SeaMonkey and Firebird current builds, resolving so.
Please reopen if this is a problem with a 1.7-track SeaMonkey nightly.
