Which reminds me of another tip...

<tip type=tag names>
Do not use dots/decimals/periods in tag names, as it makes it impossible to
reference them in Javascript when using "document.formname.tagname"

This bit me when I was adding Javascript-based form validation to a form
created from a perl program that labeled the tags item.1, item.2, etc.

> Be very careful in Dreamweaver when copying and pasting form
> elements around.  DW has a nasty habit of appending numbers
> to the end of your field names, whether they're duplicates or
> not.  Still does it in v4.
