The resolution on our last telecon about the name of the "streamlined 
syntax" spec was, I think, about deciding not to use the name WebFormsA 
more so than selecting the name FormsA in particular, though there was 
some support for that name.

There was a "typo" in my last post of this straw poll request, which 
prevented it from reaching this list, so I am posting it again.

The two names that seem to be popular are FormsA and XFormsA.  In the 
interest of getting quickly to a  first public working draft, I would like 
to ask the group to table consideration of names other than these two. 
 Please respond to this email to indicate your preferences according to 
the questions below.   If you don't respond by next telecon and are not on 
the next telecon, we will have to assume you are happy with whichever 
decision results from the feedback provided by those who do respond.  
Please respond to this email even if you have made your preference known 
in the past.

Here is the question: 

For the name XFormsA, please characterize your preference: 
Prefer 
Support / Can Live With 
Oppose 

For the name FormsA, please characterize your preference: 
Prefer 
Support / Can Live With 
Oppose 

Thank you,
