[thelist] retaining values in forms while alerting use mistakes

This is probably a new topic, but I thought if you used transitional XHTML,
you could still have html in it. I guess I better head back to the library.
I would really like to put comments in elements though!

I typed that code in quickly, so I am not missing the parens, thanks for
checking though.

Er, I would start by validating that page -- it's a mix of XHTML and HTML,
among other things...

...including the fact that you can't put comments inside elements.

If that statement's a copy/paste, you're missing a right closing paren on
the `if`...

But validate first and take it from there :-)
