+A corner case: It's possible for a form to have only HiddenInputs.
+>>> class TestForm(Form):
+... foo = CharField(widget=HiddenInput)
+... bar = CharField(widget=HiddenInput)
+>>> p = TestForm()

A Form's fields are displayed in the same order in which they were defined.
>>> class TestForm(Form):
... field1 = CharField()
