A couple of questions / issues with Sharepoint Designer 2010:

Problem 1:
I've created a form for new items.  One of the fields has an attribute of 'Person or Group' in it's definition.  I can enter the data in the form just fine; however it doesn't display on a typical list view... so as far as I can tell the field isn't getting populated in my custom form.  When I edit in the default form for the list, the data is populated correctly.  

Problem 2:
So I deleted the row from the form in designer, thinking I'd 're-do' the form and maybe it would work.  That's when I discovered there isn't a Sharepoint Control for a 'Person or Group' field... just various forms of text boxes, yes/no, and lists.  So it appears that I cannot add a 'Person or Group' field to a custom form???  I tried to just add a text box and bind it to the field, but that didn't work... the form just displays nothing for that data entry box.  

Any  ideas?  

Thanks in advance!
