XML News from Wednesday, January 7, 2009

The W3C Forms Working Group has published a working draft of XForms for HTML. "XForms for HTML provides a set of attributes and script methods that can be used by the tags or elements of an HTML or XHTML web page to simplify the integration of data-intensive interactive processing capabilities from XForms. The semantics of the attributes are mapped to the rich XForms model-view-controller-connector architecture, thereby allowing web application authors a smoother, selective migration path to the higher-order behaviors available from the full element markup available in modules of XForms." I think the goal here is to hide XForms submission within standard HTML markup, but I haven't fully grokked it yet.
