Description: ------------ I created a form with QF and specified that it should POST with a target of _self. As this page was placed in the Windows background/active desktop, it needs to have a target=_self attribute or it'll launch in a popup. Specifying the '_self' attribute in the QF Constructor did not work. I had to add it via the attributes argument or it would not work. Reproduce code: --------------- $ticketForm = new HTML_QuickForm('ticketForm', 'POST', $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], '_self'); Expected result: ---------------- <form target="_self" action="desktop.php" method="post" name="ticketForm" id="ticketForm"> Actual result: -------------- <form action="desktop.php" method="post" name="ticketForm" id="ticketForm">

Looks like there is a bad choice of default parameter value in HTML_QuickForm's constructor. Default for $target is '_self' and later such value is explicitly removed from attributes.
