Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1645) Editor Note: Section17.298 form:name

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1645?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=11464#action_11464 ] 

Patrick Durusau commented on OFFICE-1645:

Well, but your argument is for:

Note: Some form submission processes, such as those of HTML, require the use of a name for a form.

On the other issues:

I don't deny that HTML submission requires the use of a name for a form but that is hardly a reason to generalize a poor practice.

Moreover, the example of grouping radio buttons is an example of inconsistent use of names. Not being for addressing a button but for grouping them together.

Not that we can solve it here but I certainly hope for a separation of addressing, display names, grouping, etc. in ODF-Next.

Is the note suggestion acceptable?

> Section 17.298 form:name
> Ed. Note The language "This may be used to give a form or control element an identity, which is important for scripting and for submitting the content of controls." should be deleted. Control elements already have form:id. See 18.470. Forms should not be addressed by name. Particularly if the names are not required to be unique, as is the case here. We need to distinguish the concepts of display name and identification for referencing/linking/etc. Both are necessary and both merit robust solutions. However, it is unwise to confuse the two in some false sense of economy.
