Subject Re: two form one jsp

Hari,
Form name won't work, or won't be reliable, since two forms have the same
name (via Struts).  You MUST use the index.

Caroline (or Jen?)
All I can say is "Wow!"  document.getElementById() only works in IE, not
FF.  Your response is an arduous elaboration of my document.forms[0] and
document.forms[1], which is the correct solution.

If I don't completely understand the problem I typically ask for more
information or I don't respond.  Any attempt to solve the problem, without
first knowing what it is, leads to confusion on the part of the poster.
