+Prefixes for forms
+You can put several Django forms inside one ``<form>`` tag. To give each
+``Form`` its own namespace you need to use the ``prefix`` keyword argument::
+ >>> mother = PersonForm(prefix="mother")
+ >>> father = PersonForm(prefix="father")
+ >>> print mother.as_ul()
+ <li><label for="id_mother-first_name">First name:</label> <input type="text" name="mother-first_name" id="id_mother-first_name" /></li>
+ <li><label for="id_mother-last_name">Last name:</label> <input type="text" name="mother-last_name" id="id_mother-last_name" /></li>
+ >>> print father.as_ul()
+ <li><label for="id_father-first_name">First name:</label> <input type="text" name="father-first_name" id="id_father-first_name" /></li>
+ <li><label for="id_father-last_name">Last name:</label> <input type="text" name="father-last_name" id="id_father-last_name" /></li>
