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."

I'm not sure IE support is necessary. Many webapplication are distributed to a limited population and that make it easier to demand a browser with Form 2.0 support. Much like many applications rely on runtime libraries like VB and .Net. This is actually a good way to reduce the IE market share and to force Microsoft to do something about their old browser.
