In the Construct Demo, the account.html page uses a profile to run some
checks on the data which is set up as follows:

<!-- Account change profile in etc/profiles.order -->
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_order_profile VALUE=account_change>

Do the same for your page. Set up a profile in profiles.order, or
profiles.misc and reference it in your form.

Make sure you restart ic once you alter the profile.
