passes form information to a CGI script if there is no name attribute 
for the element -- input, select, etc?

Not to mention it is getting rather tedious typing both a name and id 
attribute for almost every form element.  So what is suppose to happen 
when I click [Submit] on my form and I only have an id attribute for an 

I have plan but I'm hoping for an already thought-out/official solution.
