I guess you could implement XSLT based XForms solution on client with only a
limited functionality. 
Hoever, if you want to exploit the full power of XForms's processing model
(E.g. bind computations, Xml events, dynamic constructs, etc.), existing
html/xhtml browsers cann't be effectively used, unless you extend their
functionality programmatically.

There are a few solutions which try to map XForms to xhtml + Jscript,
considerably increasing size of the document and reducing the execution
speed. But, as we know, these solutions are only gap-fillers.

Alex,

all public xforms processors I know about run on the server side. My own
100% client side "experiment" for IE6 is far away from beeing releasable. It
uses dhtml instead of xsl ( ... because it was the "shortest path" ;-)

greets

M.
