The XForms working group is interested in migration paths, and in
ways to allow existing browsers to work with XForms in some manner.
One approach is for the server to map HTML forms data submitted by
an existing HTML browser, into XML data based upon a data model held
at the server. Another is to compile an XHTML+XForms page into
HTML+JavaScript and to exploit Dynamic HTML.
