[thelist] form id instead of name?

validating a page with a form on it today, i was reminded that the NAME
attribute is no longer valid in xhtml strict...

   <form name="theform" ...

and that i should be using the ID attribute instead

   <form id="theform" ...

okay, but when i did that, all my javascript stopped working

for example, i have this radio button, and i can no longer set it using


presumably because it can no longer find "theform"

is there different syntax for using the ID? 

right now i've just left the NAME in there...
