Hello, 
the fix suggested in previous e-mail may be dangerous.
Imagine situation like this:
<table>
<form name=form1>
<tr><td> <input ...> </td></tr>
</form>
<tr><td> <form name=form2> ... </form></td></tr>
</table>

the fix will put the first form outside of the table
and we end up with nested forms.

The suggestion on
http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/pending.html to
move the form element into the nearest cell won't work
either. What if the form's inputs take several cells?
we'll end up with <input> outside of the <form>

Does anybody know a decent solution to forms problem?
I appreciate your help very much.

Luba.
