Well it on what kind of guidelines and accessibility issues Robert is
looking for. If he is interested in guidelines for current use for
sites that will be public (rather than closed intranet systems where
you may know that all users will have XFORMS capable browsers) then
I'd agree with David's guideline to not use them at all 100%.

Maybe Robert is looking for accessibility issues on a technology that
is still emerging which as such would be largely theoretical. That's
also a valid point of discussion for a list like this, but it doesn't
invalidate David's advice.

Question: How easy is it to detect if XFORMS are available and set
content appropriately?
