If a form field is empty, FORMFIELD has a parameter default to set the default text. The documentation says: "Text shown if the field is defined in the topic, but the field value is empty". But something else happens:

Test on this topic (while field Component is left empty):

format="Component: $value"
default="(no Component value given)"
alttext="field Component does not exist in topic form"

renders as:

(no Component value given)

So the macro uses the value of default for $value. Which is unexpected and wrong according to the documentation.

What happens with a non-existent form field?

field Blo does not exist in topic form

Nothing wrong there.
