Great, both <xforms:submission id="s01" action="file:///c:/temp/foo.xml"
method="put"/> and
<xforms:submission id="s01" action="file:///temp/foo1.xml" method="put"/>
worked with XSmiles. XSmiles also displayed the created XML after it saved
them. (I was using the bookmarks demo.) Thanks Leigh (and Mark B)!

Are you asking as a user or as an implementor?
As a user,
<submission action="file://locahost/foo.xml" method="put" /> "may" write to
a local file, but support is not required as part of conformance (i.e., it
is not a "must".)
If you're just looking for a quick test harness, many of the XForms
processors appear to support it.
As an implementor there are some subtleties regarding use of the file: URI
scheme with other methods that are mentioned in the spec.

If I want to save the XML submitted by my XForm as a local disk file, I
suppose I could run Tomcat and point submission/@action to a CGI running on
http://localhost:8080/whatever, but I'm wondering if anyone knows a leaner
way to do it. 

thanks,

Bob
