Same  here.   And  it's  a  show-stopper  that  prevents  us  from
upgrading the Cocoon Forms stylesheets.   Moving to AJAX costs the
refactoring  of all  client-side  Javascripts  that retrieve  HTML
elements generated by Cocoon Forms.

However the refactoring is sometimes easy: when for example the
script is only dealing with selection lists, simply replace
getElementById\("(.*)"\) by getElementById("\1-select").

You can support both 2.1.7 and 2.1.8 if you use the same set of
CForms stylesheets for both.
