Novell and IBM to Implement XForms in Mozilla

Tuesday August 10th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation has announced a project to implement XForms in collaboration with Novell and IBM. The effort aims to add support for the XForms 1.0 Standard to Mozilla.

XForms is the W3C's XML-based Web forms technology. It offers many more features than standard HTML forms, including support for input validation and integration with Web services. However, some critics maintain that XForms is too complicated for Web authors and difficult for vendors to implement (no major browser yet supports XForms).

More information about the XForms implementation can be found at the Mozilla XForms project page and the W3C XForms site has more general information about the standard. Both Novell and IBM have developed XForms applications before (the Novell XForms Technology Preview and the IBM XML Forms Package).

They showed a clip of the "first lady" giving a speech on the whole "Stem Cell Research" issue, and how she said it was wrong of the political ads to try and sway voters with relatives that have alzheimer's by saying that the cure is just around the corner.. because that's just not true.. it'll be years before we'll have a solution...

then they cut back to Jon Stewart, and he said something flippant (as usual) along the lines of: "So why bother starting now?"

Build the tools, build the support, build the knowledge base.. now. Don't just sit back and wait for the cure..
