Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Ad_form DOM error
In general, the HTML syntax specification for IDs and names is the same, the only potential conflict happens when the HTML document has already an ID for a different element, which is identical to the FORM ID. For the existing apps i have checked, this does not appear to be a problem. In general, we should define in openacs naming convention for all IDs and names to avoid clashes. This is however a larger issue since it involves CSS as well, when we start to rename IDs, on which some applications might rely. So, keep this in mind, when you use the FORM IDs (or other IDs).
If you need any help in this kind of work, let me know what I can do to help. I don't have commit rights but maybe I can submit a patch for these boring fixes.
Thank you for the good work.
