[Mono-list] Rendering of the <form> elements - a problem with MSIE

Hello everybody,

  I've been playing with the tabcontrol2 code to make it generate a tab
control like the one implemented by the Alistapart folks [1]. Changing the
code was easy and it was generating the toolbar with custom/default CSS
without any problems. Everything was fine until I tested the effect in
IE6/win (both from under Wine and directly from WinXP). It turned out that
when the page was rendered by mono, IE started showing artefacts (see [2]).
  After some investiagion I determined that the problem is the three hidden
inputs rendered for the form by mono - IE6 puts vertical whitespace for each
of the inputs present and that makes the whole design of the tab fall apart.
I haven't found a CSS workaround for the problem yet, and so I've thought
I'd ask here whether there is a way to make the mono form renderer output
the hidden inputs after the form children instead of before?

thanks in advance,
