Plug-in required for XForms?
So, from what I understand, in order for a client to view XForms, either in IE or FF, they need a plug-in? If so, what's the point of having XForms?
It's also to my understanding that the DOCTYPE! needs to be removed, making the page xhtml invalid.
Although XForms claims to bring a lot to forms in webpages, it seems like it would be more of a disadvantage than an andvantage. Or am I missing something?
This won't answer your question...
When I'm working with cutting edge technology I
have always weighed the benefits -
:Time spent on development + Time spent on work arounds
= Amount of visitors retained from being on the cutting edge.
I'm in charge of XSLTForms project.
This is a client-side implementation of XForms which is based on XSLT 1.0 and Ajax. That's why no plug-in nor installation is required and it works with IE, FF, Opera, Safari, Chrome,...
Very cool, I'll have a look at it. Thanks for letting me know.
