The docs say if you leave off the 'name' attribute, the framework will look
to the enclosing form bean.  So use 'name' to tell it which bean to use.

Is there a reason to use <html:optionsCollection> over <html:options
collection="..."> ?  Just curious, I use the second one:

<html-el:select property="type">
    <html-el:options collection="contactTypes" property="key"
(Where contactTypes is a Map sitting in Application scope.)
