I found a weird thing about IE.

This will cause bug, say the form has problem. actually it is the name field length too long. <b> 'todos[0].todoId' is too long ! </b> .its maxium of it will be 12 character. I try firefox, it is fine.

I am using IE6.02 and XP pro with SP2.

Have you ever met same problem ? Any body knows how fix it , except reducing the length ?

I have seen form fields longer than 12 characters before, I do not think there is any problem. What is the exact error message.

Showing the JSP source in an HTML forum doesn't help much. Rather, show us the renderred HTML that gets sent to the browser. Preferably pared down to only relevant portions.
