Omitting the reset() is not a good idea -- the least of your problems is
that checkboxes won't work any more.

Even though you don't want the id field displayed, you can make it part of
the incoming form by using a hidden field (with <html:hidden>).  That way,
it gets populated with the correct value just like everything else.
