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.
