Most form items need a unique id so that they can submit data to the server. No two form items may have the same id. For situations where multiple form items submit to the same field, see the name attribute. Id's that begin with contact_ will automatically save Contact information to the Contact database as long as the user has entered enough identifying information (ideally Name and Email). Check the Contact Fields page for correct field names.
Sets the name of the form item. Most of the time, the id attribute will suffice. However with form items that post multiple values into an array, each item will need to have the same name, followed by []. For example three controls with name="data[]", will all post into 'data'. Radio buttons belonging to the same group will have to share the same name.
Sets the width of the element. The default units are pixels. include the percentage symbol % to user percentage values.
