In terms of the image.x etc. pieces, because that's is how things
work when you use an image to submit a form:
"When a pointing device is used to click on the image, the form is
submitted and the click coordinates passed to the server. The x value
is measured in pixels from the left of the image, and the y value in
pixels from the top of the image. The submitted data includes
name.x=x-value and name.y=y-value where "name" is the value of the
name attribute, and x-value and y-value are the x and y coordinate
But the reason your search is failing is because your input has a
name value, which puts it into the search, and the WebPAC sees that
as a search parameter with which it's unfamiliar:
<input name="image" type="image" value="SEARCH"
src="/screens/submit.gif" alt="submit" align="middle" width="80"
...which results in &image=SEARCH in the query, which is what's
breaking things (not the image.x= etc. part).
Easiest fix is to get rid of the name attribute for the image
input. Another possibility is to make your DVD search page and form
more like the music search page.
