Dear Forms WG,

There are four tests for datatype conformance, 5.1.a, 5.1.c, 5.2.1.a and 
5.2.1.c, that use the upload control to bind to hexBinary and base64Binary 
datatypes.  For the latter three of these tests, we currently only have 
one passing implementation.  The additional passes needed to allow XForms 
1.1 to advance can be obtained from the Ubiquity XForms engine provided 
those uploads are changed to output controls.  This allows us to 
demonstrate adherence to the recognition of valid versus invalid datatypes 
for all datatypes in these forms without running afoul of the fact that we 
don't happen to have an upload control at the moment.

For reference, attached are the four revised tests from the Ubiquity 
XForms repository.  The testing framework markup around the XForms content 
is slightly modified when we import the the W3C tests (e.g. we switch to 
using xhtml as the default namespace and we add our script tag), so these 
attachments are for reference in amending the W3C tests, rather than 
simple replacement of those tests




We propose changing upload to output in these tests, as the use of upload 
makes the tests artificially complex with respect to the goal of showing 
implementability of support for datatype validity.

Thanks,
John M. Boyer, Ph.D.
