pogo W3C Level 1 JavaScript DOM

Here's a form!!...

This should already be ticked



First, the issue of having input called "name", "method" and "submit": Hint from BE: "See JSClass.convert for a starting point" (fn/obj are different). Also he says:
>> objDiv = eval(sDivID);
>> changed to
>> objDiv = document.getElementById(sDivID);
> This uses IE DOM instead of W3C DOM. 

The eval is unnecessary and costly, even in IE.  Another IE-only way to 
write this is window[sDivID] or self[sDivID].  This works because in IE, 
document elements induce properties of the window object, named by id 
attribute values.  But don't use any of that, as Georg's post reinforces 
here -- use document.getElementById for cross-browser, 
open-standards-based scripting.

and also...

ECMA specifies a [[DefaultValue]] internal method, called on objects 
when used in expressions that want a primitive type.  SpiderMonkey maps 
this onto JSClass.convert.

Finally, the whole thing in full:
