      Description

      When using submit component without specifying a name or id, the component is given the name "submit". This causes javascript error if a script later tries to invoke form.submit(), because the submit button has "hijacked" the submit function's name.

      A developer can easily stumble into this problem himself by naturally naming his button "submit", but tapestry shouldn't make the worst possible name the default one. Change the name/id to "submitButton" or something similar.
