Andrew,

Thank you for your comments.  We are using Chapter 2 example to part of
fully developed in Appendix G, where the "Cash" choice is used as an example
of XML events and the xforms:message element, where it displays a message
that says "Please do not mail cash."

We are still seeking implementation feedback, however, and if you do wish to
send cash, please note that the message is advisory only, and is not
enforced as a validity constraint.

Thank you,
Leigh.

    It is good to see the XForms CR appear but it is very disappointing to
see 
    errors reported in the previous WD persisting in the new document.

    For example, the silly example in Chapter 2 where, supposedly, it is
possible 
    to pay by cash via an electronic form is still there.

    Is the XForms WG seriously suggesting that it is possible to pay by
cash?

    Why was that not changed? As far as I recall I pointed out that simply 
    changing "Cash" to "Account" makes a ridiculous example into a credible
one.

    In the Glossary (and elsewhere), the idiosyncratic "LocationPath" is
still 
    present. If the XForms WG believes that such a form is an improvement
over 
    "location path" used in XPath 1.0 could that please be justified?

    Andrew Watt
