I am sorry, I should have clarified my self a little.  I am one of the developers for FormFaces, so along with figuring out how to best write an XForms, we are looking at the way switch works from a compliancy point of view.  Raman, your response does it mean that the controls within a case should all be bound to the same model?  

Thanks for the help,
Susan

what you want in the case of model-based switching is to use
XForms property "relevant".
UI construct <switch> does interaciton-based switching,
i.e. cases toggle on and off based on UI events, not model
events.

For what you want -- place related controls inside a group --and
use model property relevant so that when that property becomes
true during form fill-in, the relevant portion of the UI shows
up.
