in thread web-based application or desktop application?

The major problem with web-based apps, as you've hit upon, is that HTML is too simplistic.

XForms look promising. I haven't yet seen XForms mentioned on perlmonks, but I think this is one new technology that makes a lot of sense, especially to automate document workflow inside the company. None of the major browsers currently supports XForms without a plug-in, but this is only a matter of time.

    IE--, which will probably take almost 10 years to support it properly (see also: CSS layout model).
