I'm curious, I keep seeing people say that that tag is /necessary/, but I've 
never had to use it in the upload forms that I've built and they work just 
fine in Opera, NN & IE. 

Can anyone explain /why/ it's needed? 

AFAICT from the manual that tag is only to advise the browser to limit the 
size of the file being uploaded, nothing to suggest that the absence of the 
tag would prevent uploading. But if that was indeed the case then what 
browsers does it affect?
