Changes from 0.1.9 to 0.1.10:
 * XHTML support (only for Pythons >= 2.2).  Thanks to Michael Howitz.
 * A minor bugfix.

Requires Python >= 1.5.2.

ClientForm is a Python module for handling HTML forms on the client
side, useful for parsing HTML forms, filling them in and returning the
completed forms to the server.  It has developed from a port of Gisle
Aas' Perl module HTML::Form, from the libwww-perl library, but the
interface is not the same.

Simple example:

 from urllib2 import urlopen
 from ClientForm import ParseResponse

 forms = ParseResponse(urlopen(""))
 form = forms[0]
 print form
 form["author"] = "Gisle Aas"

 # returns a urllib2.Request object
 # (see HTMLForm.click_request_data.__doc__ if you're not using urllib2)
 response = urlopen("Thanks"))
