Sorry to have bothered the list. I figured out the answer (sort of). I had
parse the HTML code through an XHTML parser which removed all the name=
leaving id= only. That doesn't work with the cgi.FieldStorage function. I
still don't know how to do it with XHTML which doesn't evidently support
the name= at all. So, html it is.
