    Xhtml strict limitations on forms?

    This may not be the right forum to answer this question, but:

    Is there a limitation on form submissions in DOCTYPE xhtml strict?

    I am working up a form processing script and I am having problems
    with the html side of the script. The form has about a dozen fields
    and elements. Only a radio button set and a series of select/option elements
    are being sent to the server script. All the other text and checkbox and
    hidden elements are being ignored and not sent. I have been picking
    through, checking syntax for standards violations and combing them all
    out, picking through for markup related problems and have found none
    with at least two different versions of the form.

    Javascript will detect and handle all the form elements, but I want to
    pear down to the bare minimum without javascript. then I will start
    adding javascript processing.


    I have been trying various different markup approaches. I have never
    encountered this problem with html 4.

    in either XHTML or HTML only named form elements inside the appropriate form tags are submitted.

    more answer would require more info.

    Thanks, silly me...

    Oh, yes. Now it is working. I haven't done a form for a while and forgot that.
