This set of XML and XSL will generate two HTML forms, both named
'form1'. One form will have a combo box named 'machine_name' and the
other form will have a text box named 'limit'.

Only one of these forms is being submitted.

You either need to move the <form> element to the template matching
"records", or add a <input type="submit" /> element to each form so that
the user can pick which to submit.
