I see, that's a known bug in IE.

<input type="submit" name="foo" id="bar" value="Bar" />
<input type="submit" name="baz" id="foo" value="Foo" />

Using the same id and name in different elements
ends in IE with getting the first element with that
id or name. This means getElementById('foo') will 
return the first element found with the given 
name="foo" or id="foo".

The z3c.form framework avoids this perfectly because it
generates element names and ids like:
id="form-widgets-lastname" name="form.widgets.lastname""
This will make sure that we never generate equal names 
and ids for all form elements.
