I had a look at XForms a while ago, but the specification was
something which was not only sleep-inducing, but also didn't really
seem to meet any immediate requirements for developing Web
applications more productively. Moreover, there was no indication that
any browser would support the technology any time soon; indeed, I'm
pretty sure that no mainstream browser supports it even now.

Interestingly, Novell seem to be all excited about XForms in that I
saw some of their developer pages which advertised some package or
other in which you could design them.

I've been interested in manipulating Web form data as XML, and
formatting that data using XML-based templates. Right now, though, I
don't have anything I can show you.
