Dots in html id's gives an error in CSS when trying to assign styles.

maybe this will do:

def get_id(self):
    "Returns the HTML 'id' attribute for this form field."
    return FORM_FIELD_ID_PREFIX + self.field_name.replace('.', '_')

Not sure it would be worth committing changes to oldforms at this point in time. Is this an issue in newforms too?

Should be fixed, but only in newforms.

I'm having some trouble decoding the ticket title "...form fields id's of related objects". Using the normal recipe for creating a newform, fields are created as properties and thus does can not contain dots (syntactically incorrect).

However if you manually alter the fields / base_fields properties of the form, you could make a field with a dot in the name.

Is it Django's problem, if you manually tries to break things?
