It depends on what you're gonna do with it. Your receiving script (PHP, 
Perl, etc.) must know what form was sent. This is normally checked by the 
value? (or name?) of the submit button (if only one target exists for 
multiple forms). The form name is not necessary as long as you know what 
to do with the form.
