One input assigned to multiple forms

I was reading about the HTML5 form attributes here:http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_form_attributes.aspSpecifically the part:

Tip: To refer to more than one form, use a space-separated list of form ids.But for the life of me I can't get it to work.I know you can easily do it with Javascript (as I have it now), but if you can do it just as easily with HTML, I figure why not.Any ideas why this may not be working (I tried both Chrome and FF).

I'm not sure what browser you're testing in, but Internet Explorer doesn't support the form attribute. I believe the value is case sensitive, so "Form1" would be different than "form1"


Well, I am testing in Firefox and it seems that assigning an input to multiple forms isn't supported. I guess there's nothing to do about it.


Here's Mozilla's description:




The form element that the input element is associated with (its form owner). The value of the attribute must be an id of a <form> element in the same document. If this attribute is not specified, this <input> element must be a descendant of a <form> element. This attribute enables you to place <input> elements anywhere within a document, not just as descendants of their form elements. An input can only be associated with one form.
