Index: form-session-id
__NAME__ purpose
insert hidden form field containing the session ID

__NAME__ synopsis
<group choice='req'>
	<arg choice='plain'></arg>

__NAME__ description
It is necessary to include the &IC; session ID on &glos-HTML; forms when 
users are not accepting cookies, or they might lose the session information.
The <tag>form-session-id</tag> tag inserts the appropriate hidden form field
containing session ID on a page, but only when necessary.
In most cases, the tag <emphasis role='bold'>will</emphasis> insert the
hidden form field (that is, when users are not accepting cookies or public
display of session IDs &mdash; <mv>no_session_id</mv> &mdash; is not disabled).
It will <emphasis role='bold'>not</emphasis>, however, insert the field if
the user <emphasis role='bold'>is</emphasis> accepting browser cookies
and <mv>no_session_id</mv> is enabled.

__NAME__ example: Simple form with an optional session ID form field
Here's a very simple login form. As you can see, all you have to do to
include the session ID on the form is to include <tag>form-session-id</tag>
somewhere in it.
<form action="[process secure=1]" method="POST">
  <input type="hidden" name="mv_todo"  value="return">
  <input type="hidden" name="mv_click" value="Login">
  <input type="hidden" name="mv_failpage" value="login">
  <input type="hidden" name="mv_successpage" value="[either][scratchd mv_successpage][or]member/service[/either]">
  <input type="hidden" name="mv_nextpage" value="index">

  [L]Username[/L]: <input name="mv_username" value="[scratch cookie_username]"><br/>
  [L]Password[/L]: <input type="password" name="mv_password" VALUE=""><br/>
  <input class="button3" type=submit value="[L]Log In[/L]">
