Jouni,

It was the difficulties in making comparisons clearly in situations like
that 
you mention above that led to my question.

We have been discussing this as if the term "XForm" does not exist in
the 
XForms specificatoin but it does. We have, for example, elements such as
<
xform:xform>.

Surely we can, without too much controversy, take "xform" from being
merely 
an element type name (and conventional namespace prefix) to being an
accepted 
term in the XForms specification?

Regards

Andrew Watt
