There is no INT type in HTML 2.0. You must be looking at one of the
early draft specs, which contain highly erroneous FORM examples (they
were really examples for an old version of HTML+). Please see the
latest draft (November 22, 1994) or wait a few days for the final
IETF submission to be released as HTML and PS.

(P.S. Shouldn't we start hiding these old drafts? Dan?)
