Thanks Charlie!

At the moment, the forms are designed to run on our Form Runner  
runtime. Form Runner adds a lot of useful plumbing, including handling  
persistence, error summaries, attachments, internationalization, and  
import/export.

Each form produced with Form Builder is an XHTML+XForms document plus  
attachments (you can attach images, PDF, and CSS files to each form).  
If you don't have any attachments, the forms created are probably one  
XSLT transformation away from being usable in other runtimes.  
Depending on how many of the above features you wish to support, the  
transformation will be more or less work. It would be great to look  
into this, but for obvious reasons so far we have focused on our own  
implementation and runtime.

No problem ;-)
