InPlaceEditor is missing the action attribute in the generated form

Reported by Joost Elfering | May 26th, 2010 @ 02:29 PM

The InPlaceEditor Class generates a form when the object is selected. This form contains a couple of attributes but is missing the HTML required "action" attibute. (reference: http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#h-17.3).

result of this is that chrome (tested on chrome 4+) will try to submit an action on a enter. without an action defined the browser assumes the current page is the action resulting in a reload of the page. inplace experience is thrown out of the window this way.

solution could be defining a JavaScript in the action. "javascript:void(0);", "javascript:return false;" or anything else would be valid for most browsers.
