I would carefully look at the HTML that you produce here. And then
make sure I don't have nested forms. Remember that if you use Chrome
(and I suspect Firefox and others too), the HTML you see with the
"inspect element" menu does not give you the real HTML. Chrome removes
nested forms. Make sure you look at the raw HTML.

If you say "recognized" I assume you're talking about inputs posted
with the submit, which translates into callbacks processed by Seaside.
If so, your inputs are not in the same form tag or you have nested
form tags.

Yes, we're doing this a lot, so we can find out what's going on here.
