If you have a link of the format "#form1" in a control contained in a user control, this method looks for a form with id=form1 in the user control. If not found, it goes up the chain of any nested user controls, and then searches for the form on the page.
Scoping rules walk up, not down, the chain. If you want to browse to a form that is contained in a user control, you must use the ":" syntax used by FindControl method to refer to the form.
