Very good!
I would also like to see the textarea element used in forms supported.
Can we give it a class='inputtext' even though it is not called an
input element? Just to keep a simple consistency?
so we can use:
input box: class='inputbox specificbox'
input button: class='inputbutton specificbutton'
textarea: class='inputtext specifictext'

"specific" being wikisearch or newpage or whatever specific form name.

I also agree with Hagan to introduce these classes to other pmwiki
scripts using form elements, as he listed them:


and to make a general recommendation to cookbook recipe writers to use
these conventions if they use form elements.
