[bioontology-support] Form widget problem

Sorry for the long delay on response. The problem here is that we have
shifted to a more "sematic webby" notion of id. The current "id" is a URI
(formerly this was the "long id"). The old short id (often called just
"id") is available in another property but this apparently is not wired
up. I will file a bug on this. I think though that, for consistency going
forward we will keep the "id" as the URI in this call and introduce some
other property for the old (short) id.

Thanks Ray.

Regarding the form widget again: I get the same values for both the
"a_bioportal_concept_id" and "a_bioportal_full_id" attributes.

For example, from if I type the
term "Neoplasms" into the "Example 3" box I get: 

<input id="c_bioportal_concept_id" type="hidden"
<input id="c_bioportal_full_id" type="hidden"

However, I would expect the concept id to have a value of "D009369".

This duplication of values also seems to occur for the other ontologies
I'm interested in.

Is this a fault or have I misunderstood what the concept id relates to?

Thanks for your help.
