WHATWG Looking for Comments on First Draft of Web Forms 2

Sunday June 27th, 2004

Ian Hickson writes: "The WHATWG is looking for comments on the first stable draft of the Web Forms 2.0 specification. The Web Forms 2.0 specification addresses requests made for new features to be added to the Forms features in HTML4. New features include new input control types for dates, times, e-mail addresses, and numbers; a new client-side validation model; a way to mark input controls as required; a repetition model; control over form submission so that forms can be updated instead of causing the page to be replaced; and more. Comments should be sent to the WHATWG mailing list."

That's interesting. Of course, this guy's job is just to collect customer feedback. The question is whether there are any engineers on the project. Especially, any engineers who worked on MSHTML guts before.

I think there's a strong possibility that this is just Microsoft not wanting to make it *too* obvious just yet that they're screwing their customers by walking away from IE.
