Andrew,
 
As you have suggested I am extrapolating from the public discussion that
has had an airing on this list. I have had no information that would
suggest that Microsoft is working on or likely to work on an XForms
implementation.
 
As you know Microsoft are active in many of the XML related standards
process, and their absence from the XForms process is notable - as is
their development of a proprietary technology with almost the same
purpose. Microsoft were initially active in the OASIS Web Services for
Interactive Applications TC as well, but don't seem to be involved in
that any more either.
 
Regards,
Rob

I'm in the process of building one on .NET in C#. I am working under the
assumption that MS will not be doing so given their stance on XForms. 


Rob,

Could you express what you think Microsoft's stance on XForms actually
is?

I don't recall hearing anything definitive.

Are you extrapolating from public speculation about XDocs or are you
thinking about something more specific?

Thanks

Andrew Watt
