Exactly. What that says to me is that it is optional. If you include it then 
the browser may or may not use it. But if you don't include it then your 
browser would allow you to upload any size of file.

However, the point is that a number of people seem to be implying that uploads 
only worked for them *after* they've added that MAX_FILE_SIZE thing. But 
there isn't any concrete evidence to show that the lack of the MAX_FILE_SIZE 
thing does have any effect on whether or not one can upload.

If you have spare time on your hands go through the archives for problems 
related to file uploads, invariably someone would suggest adding 
MAX_FILE_SIZE. To me, I think it's a load of cobblers, unless someone can 
show me otherwise :)
