Actually, after thinking about it a bit further, it might be
better to define

  $InputTags['jumpform']['name'] = 'n';
  $InputTags['jumpform'][':html'] =
    "<form action='{$PageUrl}' method='get'>
     <select \$InputFormArgs 
     <input type='submit' value='$[Go to Page]' /></form>";

In this case, the pagelist needed to generate a jumpform is just

    (:input jumpform value="{=$PageUrl}" label="{=$Title}":)

and we don't have to worry about creating any form or submit elements
because "(:input jumpform ...)" already takes care of that for us.
