I assume you're using XHTML (either xhtml="true" in the Struts html
element or the <html:xhtml/> tag). Normally Struts will create a "name"
attribute for the form tag that contains the form bean name. But in the
xhtml spec, the form tag doesn't have a "name" attribute, so Struts puts
the form bean name into an id attribute instead. As you've seen, if you
try to specify an ID tag, Struts dies.
