Why Kindle Does Not Show Form Tags

I have included original page numbers as anchored links in my ebooks for referencing purposes. And it works as I expected in mobipocket reader.

When I write page number an click go it goes to my anchor.
Code:
<form name="frm1" method="get">
<input name="textbox1" type="text" onclick="document.location.hash=this.value" onchange="document.location.hash=this.value">
<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="buttonGo" Value="Go" onclick="document.location.hash=textbox1.value">
</form>
Here is my anchor
Code:
<a name="part1" external="yes"/>
It works perfectly in Mobipocket but Amazon Kindle 3 does not show neither textbox nor submit button. All I see is blank space. I think Kindle ignores form tags completely.
Is there any workaraounds?

I have attached my test files.

The Kindle does not support html forms... and it does not support javascript.
Check out the Kindle Publishing Guidelines for a list of the supported html tags.
