How to determine what to write in the attribute "value" and "name" inside the element input type?
Hi, I'm still a little confused as to what to write, whenever I get to the part "value" and "name" section in the input element. What should we write in the value and name section? I understand the "id" part that it will be used later on for CSS styling ( I hope I got this one right) but for value and name, it still always confuse me.

The "name" attribute is used to identify the value of a form element when it is submitted. It should generally be a single word that represents what the value is used for. As an example, a text box that has a label of "What is your favorite color?" might have a "name" attribute set to "color".
The "value" is generally optional, and used to give the input a default value that will be shown in the control, and submitted if the user does not change it.
