    Need some advice with Form action

    Hi there,

    I need help grasping this,

    I'm currently learning html and I've come to a point in a tutorial where the below code is involved:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form action="#">
    <select name="favorite">
    <option value="HTML">HTML</option>
    <option value="CSS">CSS</option>
    <option value="Javascript">Javascript</option>
    </select>
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>
    The part that I don't understand is that form action equals hash ? As far as I know form action should equal a link and then the selected option value could then be stored in the link destination ?

    My question here is what does it mean when form action is equal to hash ?

    The form will just submit to itself.
    Add a submit button, chose an option and submit the form. Your choice can be see in the page url.
