    You probably need to give more information. A form is a simple HTML element, and it's easy to add inputs, labels ans wot not inside them. Are you talking about styling forms, or getting them to pass data to the server, or ... ?

    I've used Wufoo on a few sites, quite easy if you don't mind paying.
    Comcure does independent, off-site website backups just for the webmaster
    Full API. Daily Snapshots. Backup via FTP, FTP over TLS or SFTP.
    Storage Pods in USA, Europe and Asia to come. Backup to the closest one.

    I think another unsung advantage of woofoo is that they ALSO build an accompanying database for the form.

    Remember there are 5 parts to a form.

    1) The HTML markup.(the actual semantics and elements)
    2) The CSS styling ( the look)
    3) The behavior (usually done in .js) (the focus on elements, do fields change when other fields are selected? pop up windows for extra inputs..ect)
    4) The DB ( where does this data go?)
    5) The process ( what does the data do) for example in a log in form if the "passkey" field doesnt match a predetermine string.. go back t the form, else go to a specific URL.

    Your question might be more easily understood broken down as outlined above.

    I was looking over the wufoo forms documentation and for a solution that doesn't require any programming looks pretty nifty. I would never use it but for someone who lacks programming skills seems like a nice solution. Many nifty features especially that REST API if you need to go the extra mile with data management.
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.
