TechNote 127847 - Object Elements in Forms

Questions:

David: I used tn-<bug#>.html as the file name, TechNote <bug#> - Description as
the title. Is that a reasonable format? I was thinking of a section on
web-developer named Tech Notes with a unordered list of links using the
technote title as the link text. Ok with you?

bz: Submitting the example form will not submit the OBJECT in Mozilla but will
in IE6. Is this an open issue or is there something wrong with the example I am
using?
We don't submit objects; we just list them in .elements (per DOM and for IE compat).

We didn't realize IE actually submitted the objects.  What does it send as the
value??
