    I get a javascript error while loading an ASP.Net page. The page contains a
    form to which ASP.Net inserts a name which has ":" charachter. The
    javascript generated by ASP.Net gives an error of an Expected ";". The
    javascript code generated is

    function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) {
    var theform;
    if (window.navigator.appName.toLowerCase().indexOf("netscape") > -1)
    theform = document.forms["_ctl0:_ctl0:MediaPartnerForm136"];
    theform = document._ctl0:_ctl0:MediaPartnerForm136;
    theform.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget.split("$").join(":");
    theform.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;

    The form has the attributes

    <form name="_ctl0:_ctl0:MediaPartnerForm136" method="post"
    action="lightbox.aspx" id="_ctl0__ctl0_MediaPartnerForm136">

    Can someone give me some insight on this if this can be handled?
