The Forms panel in View Page Info appears to display an input element's "id"
attribute value for the "Field Name" column instead of the "name" attribute. 
The "name" field is most important because that is what is sent back to the web
server on a submit.  This is especially important for radio-button style input
elements since each element must have a unique id value (if present at all), but
should share the same name value (in the same button group).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a simple HTML form with multiple input elements in the form
2. Give each element a unique id value, but sharing the same name value
3. Load the page and then use View Page Info..Forms.

Actual Results:  
Field Name shows the value from the id attribute, not the name attribute.

Expected Results:  
Show the value of the name attribute, regardless of any id attributes.

This is even in standards compliance mode (XHTML 1.0 strict).
