Hi Roman,
 
relatively simple: we don't know (yet). For the time being, the working
group is focusing on getting the integration with HTML straight, because
this is the by far most important use case. Once that is settled (and
probably: while gathering experience with that), the WG will take on
other integrations and stand-alone XForms. It is simply easier to do the
concrete thing first and the abstract once we have the experience. After
all, nobody has experience with this type of integration languages yet
(a combination of several different vocabularies, even including several
well established ones). We have to ship XForms now, which means we can't
afford to experiment much longer. At the same time, what we already have
is something extremely powerful.
 
But don't let our schedule hinder you: Go ahead, try it. You will
probably find that you need to introduce at least such a root element,
possibly more. Once you know how it works, let us know, too. Then we
have a better grip on what is needed.
 
regards,
 
Josef

Subject: Problem with root Element


Hi folks!
 
According to the new WD it would be possible to write a standalone XForm
document with all the instance data, model declaration and form
controlls or to embed the XForm elements in XHTML. Well, my question now
is... If I want to write a standalone XForms, which root element do I
have to use, because according to the XForm Schema, there is none.
IS there a standard root element for standalone XForms documents?
 
Thanx a lot,
Roman Huditsch
