[Dojo-interest] dijit.form.textbox ID Attribute Issue (Constructor vs. .attr)

So many of the examples I have seen, and *are* posted on the various sites,
seem to open that up for mis-interpretation.

Specifically.... "If the developer passes an ID" would lead one to believe
that if I pass in an ID then, it will be used.

Thanks for the reply. We can mark this closed.
