in reply to Form generation

I'm waiting for WebForms to become a real standard... Plain HTML is absolutely terrible for forms, even with JavaScript tricks.

See the current working version of the standard

    But Xforms is already a W3C recommendation and has already got (albeit beta) support in Firefox and Mozilla and even has a plugin for IE, why wait for something else?


      I'm waiting for the O'Reilly book on it! Seriously, it is in beta everywhere, so I wouldn't run a business with it. I have certainly read and understood the current standard, and I'm ready to start using it.

      When XForms/WebForms is in its final form (what I referenced was the almost-final draft) I will feel more comfortable developing with it. The idea of specifying abstract UI, of course, is not new, but I really like the way that WebForms does it, because I can see that working in a Java Swing or Perl/Tk environment as well with some small modifications.
