ImageField forms require an enctype, not documented

Well, this may very well not be a Django issue, but I can't help but suggest that this small caveat be documented somewhere.

Forms with ImageField require an enctype attribute such as <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="">. Yes, it's HTML, not Django. But frustrating nonetheless.

As you can see by reactions in many new developers have a tough time when dealing with this issue. I'm not bold enough to submit a documentation patch, but it should be fairly simple to explain.

This is documented: Description of both FileField and ImageField link to that page. There is also a link in "Working with forms" article.
