[thelist] accessing a form within a div created on-the-fly

Thanks Eric.  Unfortunately it still doesn't work!

I'm getting the error :  "Runtime error: Object doesn't support this
property or method"

I've been using alert statements to see what I *can* access, and with the

    alert("url : " + document.URL)
    alert("no elements in all : " + document.all.length)
    alert("form name : " + document.all.forms(0).name)

The first 2 alerts give me correct output, but the third returns the error.

Would it possibly be something to do with the fact that the form is created
dynamically too?  I am going to try adding the form to the forms array
explicitly, maybe that will get rid of the problem..?

We'll see.  Still open to other suggestions!

Thanks again Eric,
