Given the following code:

form_tag ....
    text_area :val, params[:val]
    submit_tag...
end


Is there a way to change to

text_area :xx

but keep :val as the parameter that is passed to the backend?  That is, I want to change the id but the parameter name.

I think it's a matter of setting both the 'id' and 'name' parameters, but I can't remember which one is passed back to the controller. I think I've done this before on a form that had multiple fields using the same controller variables, but I can't find any examples now.
