The abstract for the article includes the text, " ...it holds great promise: 
For instance, a form written with XForms can be written once and displayed in 
optimal ways on several different platforms.".

Is it true that it is possible to write a "form" once and then display it "in 
optimal ways" on several platforms?

Apart from the uncertainty about what an XForms "form" actually is, it seems 
to me difficult/impossible to actually achieve the natural language reading 
of the quoted statement.
