Hmmm... actually, that's a good point. The HTML 4.01 specification

     At all times, exactly one of the radio buttons in a set is checked.
     If none of the <INPUT> elements of a set of radio buttons specifies
     `CHECKED', then the user agent must check the first radio button of
     the set initially.
Next time I'll read the spec before reporting a bug. :-)
