understanding XML forms

I'm checking out the source-code for a form designed with XML, where there
is no "action" defined, simply a "name" attribute in the <form> tag as

<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="" name='xdata' >

the only other references to "xdata" are in the form validation function as
the document name (document.xdata.fieldname, etc).

How does this data actually get sent off if there is no action defined?

thanks for any hints...

Well... it looks more like HTML.

There is an action, it is defined as "". I seem to recall that the rules for
expanding relative URLs means that this should point at the current
document, but some implementations treat it as href="./", so it is not good
