the name= HTML parameter was added to th elatest update

fox.php as part of the foxforum.php has not yet been updated.

I would like to keep things simple.
Each fox form needs a name as first parameter in the markup, for
identifying the form (and the end of the form).
This is past in HTMl as the 'foxname' parameter in a hidden input
field. It is now also used as a name= attribute in the HTML form tag.
I could expand this to add it as a HTML id= attribute of the form tag.
I don't see why it should be specified differently from the name

I have not seen a reason to add a class= HTML attribute, and why we
should be able to specify it. Each input control carries a class
attribute, and it could also be specified as part of the input markup.

In general any parameter added to the fox markup is passed as a
hidden input value at form submission. Some parameter names are
reserved words.
