You can add arbitrary attributes to both the form (widget) and any
element with the 'attributes' hash-ref.

$widget->attributes->{onsubmit} = 'javascript:mymethod(this.form)';

$element->attributes->{onclick} = 'xxx';

I suggest you always use the above method, rather than doing
$widget->attributes( { key => value, key2 => value } ),
as this would delete any attributes already set.
