The spec says:

| For image controls, instead of using the name given by the name 
| attribute, the field's name is checked against two names, the first 
| being the value of the name attribute with the string .x appended to it, 
| and the second being the same but with .y appended instead. Thus image 
| controls are handled as if they were two controls.
| If the identified form control is a file upload control, a push button 
| control, or an image control, then the field element is now skipped.
