"When the [form element's action] attribute is absent, UAs must act
as if the action attribute was the empty string, which is a relative
URI reference, and would thus point to the current document (or the
specified base URI, if any)."
In IE7, FF2, FF3, Opera 9.2, it ignores the base URI and always
submits to the current page. In Safari 3, it does take account of the
base URI. In all, <form action=""> does the same as <form>. In all,
<form action="."> does take account of the base URI. Perhaps it would
be sensible to follow the majority.
