I have tried that and get wierd results, forgot to mention. Initially
I will get 2 as the length, which is correct. But if I add a few i
might get a 3 when there is really 5, its not consistent. So maybe
you are right..how do I make sure they are children/descendents? I
assumed since they are added INSIDE the form tags they were...
