Hidden Gotcha's

Watch out for hidden gotcha's when developing forms with the designer. I have
discovered 2 of them that can drive a developer nuts. They both deal with
tables, hide-whens and pass-thru HTML.

If you create text on a form, then directly after the text you create a table,
make sure to place a blank line between the text and the table. If you don't
have a blank line between the line of text and the table, and the line of text
is marked as pass-thru HTML or a hide-when formula is applied to the text line,
expect wierd results inside the upper, leftmost cell of the table.

Apparently, Notes will think that the table is part of the pass-thru HTML or
hide-when, and will continue that attribute right into the table.

The blank line between the text line and the table can be hidden from Notes and
Web, as long as the attribute is applied after the blank is created.
