Yes, it does seem to be missing from all headings in cf_byprog.html.
There are undoubtedly others missing as well. Time for a more thorough
look at the docs?

I assume you mean value="sv", not content="sv".

That means there's another hidden input line defining the value as htdig,
so you're getting a combination of the two. The "space" is actually a
control-A character, currently used to separate multiple input parameters.
You did say you added the input line above, implying you did nothing
to the one that's already there! Take a closer look at the search.html
input form.
