XForms

By Deane Barker on August 5, 2003

XForms – the next generation of Web forms: There’s a proposed recoomendation for the new XForms spec, which will change the way forms are presented into about everything, from WML to XHTML.

“The XForms User Interface provides a standard set of visual controls that are targeted toward replacing today’s XHTML form controls. These form controls are directly usable inside XHTML and other XML documents, like SVG. Other groups, such as the Voice Browser Working Group, may also independently develop user interface components for XForms.”

CNet has a bit on it as well: “Online forms standard gets a push.”
