Description (last modified by Douglas Hays)

The 1.0.2 version of the dijit.form.Form widget defaults enctype to "multipart/form-data". This means that the following won't work:

<form id="fooForm" dojoType="dijit.form.Form" action="/foo" method="post">

Instead, this must be used:

<form id="fooForm" dojoType="dijit.form.Form" action="/foo" method="post" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">

Not a huge deal, but the HTML 4.01 spec defines "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" as the default (, so it was a surprise to see that the Form widget uses something different.
