'post' form in menu

Poster: edweill

I have a menu with a form in it which is operating correctly using
  aI("text=<form name='login' action='#' method='get'><table border='0' width=100 class='login'><tr><td><input type='hidden' value='login' name='formuse'><br><br><br>username:<br><input name='username' type='text' size='12' maxlength='32'></td></tr><tr><td>password:<br><input name='password' type='password' size='8' maxlength='8'> <input type='image' src='/i/go-login.gif' value='submit' ></td></tr><tr><td><a href='javascript:trak(\"/login.shtml\")' class='login'>Forgot Password?</a></td></tr><tr><td><br><a href='javascript:trak(\"/register.shtml\")' class='login'>New Brokers,<br>register here</a></td></tr></table></form>;type=form;");

As you can see it is using the form in GET mode, which shows the username and password on the address bar of the resulting page. When I change the mode to POST the menu shows up all right but when I try to use it I get an error message which says
Error 501/505 - Not implemented or not supported
Internet Explorer

Is there a way to get a post methd form in my menu? Do I need a different type?

Have you tried escaping \'

although I found it best to not use ' at all, if you have to try \'

I'm using post without a problem.
