oh nice. So the HTML problem is solved.

But in VXML you submit the form like this

<submit next="wizard?" namelist="city propertyType
rent"/>

The above statement is not a problem.


<var name="cocoon-action-next" expr="Next"/><!-- this
vxml variable is actually an javascript variable
generated at the backend -->

<submit next="wizard?"
namelist="cocoon-xmlform-view city propertyType rent cocoon-action-next"/>
<!-- even if i had an array I would have to submit
cocoon-xmlform-view variable. how? -->

This gives an error.
