As I was unable to find good examples to render an inlineformset together, I have posted this to Django snippets.

The example shows a person's data together with the phonenumbers for that person.

You can add, update and delete from this form.

    })


### Template that renders all this goodness ###

<fieldset class="module aligned ">
{% for field in personform %}
    <div class="form-row">
            <div class="field-box">
                {{ field.errors }}
                {{ field.label_tag }}: {{ field }}
            </div>
    </div>
{% endfor %}
</fieldset>

<fieldset class="module aligned ">
<h2>Phone Numbers</h2>
<table>
     <tr>
     {% for field in phoneformset.forms.0 %}
          {% if not field.is_hidden %}
               <th>{{ field.label }}</th>
          {% endif %}
     {% endfor %}
     </tr>
     {% for f in phoneformset.management_form %}
          {{ f }}
     {% endfor %}
     {% for f in phoneformset.forms %}
          <tr>
          {% for field in f %}
               {% if not field.is_hidden %}
                    <td>
                    {{ field.errors }}
                    {{ field }}
                    </td>

I'd like to see the models.py for the objects you used.
