Sorry, I snipped too far when I replied. I don't suppose you could send mails as text could you? I find the formatted variety gets into a mess very quickly.

This is a really complicated area! At the moment we are only looking at messaging between company trading partners who have clearly defined contractual relationships, rather than at general eCommerce. 

I honestly don't think I can usefully say any more than that at the moment. We certainly don't see any problems with XForms just now, but would like to see digital signatures, etc, and also things like allowing the form author to express the intent that specific fields must not be calculated, coming in the future.

Hope that helps a little.

All the best

Mark
