Hello XForms WG,

The CSS WG has some comments on the "XForms 1.0" WD, but we won't be
able to reach consensus on them this week. Below is a list of the
things we have been talking about so far, but we may not retain all of
them and we haven't decided the wording of them either.

If possible, we would like to use the face-to-face next week to
finalize the comments and take the opportunity to talk to some of you
about them as well, if some XForms people are present on Tuesday.

(It would also be a good opportunity to build some shared vision of
how the UI of an XForm should be constructed out of XForms mark-up and
style sheets.)

We will make sure you get the final comments before Thursday, Feb 28.
Is that OK?

1) CR exit criteria too weak. Cf. the "Selectors" exit criteria:

(from http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-css-wg/2002JanMar/0135.html)

2) The selectMany and selectOne controls should be merged.

3) ... and should have control over minimum and maximum number of
selected items.

4) checkbox" and "radio" style hints should be merged, since they are
not a style, but dictated by whether min-select = max-select = 1.

5) ... or radio should not be a valid choice on selectMany and
checkbox not a choice for selectOne

(from http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-css-wg/2002JanMar/0250.html)

6) HTTP GET should not be deprecated, as its semantics cannot be
reproduced by POST.

7) Grammar error: "they" referring to a singular referent.

8) Automatic selection of UI widget based on datatype of INPUT element
is not realistic, since datatypes can be user-defined.

9) ID attribute is missing from "common attributes"

On behalf of the CSS WG,
