And so it should.

http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-html40-19980424/interact/forms.html#edef-FORM

I can't see a name attribute there.

I suggest you use id for client side script (and use HTML 4.01 (a bug 
fix release), and use Strict rather than Transitional (its 2007, we 
should be beyond the pre-1999 backwards compatibility that Transitional 
supports)).
