There are a couple of parts of the Abstract which seem to me to merit 
editing.

In the first paragraph it reads, "By splitting traditional XHTML forms into 
three parts—XForms model, instance data, and user interface ..."

In reality "traditional XHTML forms" do not have those three parts - there 
is, for example, no XForms model in an HTML/XHTML form.

I suggest it be redrafted to read something like, "Rather than having a 
monolithic approach to forms, as evidenced in traditional XHTML forms, XForms 
separates the XForms model, instance data and user interface ..."

Or, alternatively, omit the mention of "traditional XHTL forms" and simply 
state that XForms splits a form into three parts.

In the second paragraph of the Abstract I suggest that between "be integrated 
into other" and "markup languages" there be inserted "XML". Alternatively it 
should be indicated that both XML and non-XML languages are targeted.
