[thelist] Applying formatting to Form

Thanks guys.

I have fixed the HTML - just careless.  I will look at other ways to
emphasize the team names, or just forget about it.  It is reasonably clear
even without emphasis, but I was just being fussy.

Thanks again.

Some bad HTML here...

<p>Select team for updating: <select> name="team_name"></p>

should be

<p>Select team for updating: </p><select> name="team_name">

unless your intention is, that <select> has no <option> elements, and 
you've ommitted the end tag intentionally.

And as Paul said, you can't have HTML inside an option element, only 
#PCDATA (parsed character data).
