Maybe this:

Unless there might be hidden form fields at the top of the form. If so,
maybe this:
  for (i=0; i<document.forms[0].elements.length; i++)
    if (document.forms[0].elements[i].type != 'hidden') {

All this assumes there is only one form on the page. (Not true with my
site's skin, which has a search form in the header.)
