Right on all counts.

That being said, I don't see an overwhelming need for Microsoft to ever provide direct support for XForms because they already provide cool technologies for others to insert custom technologies for which they are experts.  For example, it seems unlikely that an XForms implementation would even remotely approach the size of the PDF control, but many people choose to add the PDF control to their system because it is a very good document presentment technology.  It serves a purpose and is easy to deploy on top of IE.  Same idea for XForms.

It would mean that the current implementation done is in the form of an
ActiveX control/Active Doc Server.
In one of the future releases of IE{or any other browser} which is compliant
to the specs, would  not require third party plug-ins/controls...

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong...

thanks and regards

Coming in late to this...

Does this mean that XForms uses ActiveX controls, and that the non IE
browsers that do not support ActiveX cannot use XForms?
