Hello Holly,

I will get one of the guys to look into your problem, although it sounds
like you might not be using the SP 1 version of IE, which we have discovered
is needed. However, I thought I'd reply quickly and ask if you could post
your question to our group on Yahoo!, since the list you have posted this
message to is very specifically for discussion about the XForms
specification, rather than any particular application.

Our list is at:


and any question you post will automatically go through to our developers.
Any files you can attach would be appreciated.

Whilst I'm here though ... thanks very much for your interest in

Subject: Forms Player problem with post

I am using the Forms Player (www.formsplayer.com) processor in an IE browser
to render my XForms pages, but have run into a problem. I have a form
which submits data to a servlet using the 'post' method and should return a
page of mixed HTML/XML content as the response, but when the IE browser
should display my returned page, it crashes.  When I change the method to
'get', it works, however I need to use the 'post' method so I can get the
instance data in my servlet. Also, when I do a 'post', but remove the forms
player specific tags on the response page, I receive my page, but then my
XForms tags are not processed. Has anyone had this problem, or have any idea
why this might be happening?
Any help is appreciated!
