Dear Jeremy,

what you ask for is a fairly often requested feature. Unfortunately, it
is also a very difficult one. With the usual disclaimers, XForms 1.0
does not support markup in the data. "<" and "&" will be recoded on the
fly to "&lt;" and "&amp;". The handling is essentially identical to
XSL-T's.

I'm sure we will look into this very deeply when we come to XForms 2.0.
Do you have any idea how to make this work with arbitrary markup
languages?

Josef
