or without the literal quotes) That's because the browser interprets the "input" tag like this: input type="text" name="testing" value="" In other words, the "value" attribute is an empty string, which is why the browser doesn't show {"boo-boo"}. There's also a fault in my ML dialect, as I never considered that people might want to display text with double quote marks. My ML dialect (or maybe Build-Tag dialect) should check every string! attribute value and 'escape' any double quote marks inside (so that people don't have to worry about this.
