Does input type file NOT display the value clause, if present?

Here is the HTML:

            <tr>
                        <td>Spec. Sheet</td>
                        <td><input type="file" size="50" name="ss" value="Christy 67 Series Hose Clamp Spec Sheet 1-24-2014.pdf"></td>
                  <tr>

Attached is a screen shot of the result (in Firefox).

Why does the value not display>

You cannot set the value of a FILE input.  It is there for the user to choose the file to upload.  Being able to set the value would be a security risk
