Forms - id vs. name

Form fields with only an id attribute are not submitted at all.

Form fields with only a name attribute are not linked to their label.

There are no differences between 'Strict mode' and 'Quirks mode'.

On this page I research serious problems with the id attribute of a form field.

The problem is that browsers only send form fields that have a name attribute to the server. On the other hand, clicking on a label tag only works if the form field it belongs to has an id.

Example 1 - id

Each form field in the form below has an id attribute.

Example 2 - name

Each form field in the form below has a name attribute.

Conclusion - use both

Therefore if you want to use labels and submit the form you must use both attributes for each form field: id and name.
