Hello,

  The Mozilla Foundation reports that Novell and IBM
have teamed up to create a Mozilla addon to support
the W3C XForms machinery.

  The new Mozilla and XForms project page states:

    This project has some daunting tasks ahead, not
least of which is full XML Schema support, binding UI
elements to instance data, and switch, case and
toggle. Initially this project will try to achieve
most of the XForms features in a manner that requires
the least amount of intrusion to the Mozilla codebase
and the least amount of work to us. Kinda like an
XForms Basic type of approach keying off of the
extensibility of the browser. This will mean
leveraging XTF(*) where possible.

    and

    - Gerald

For Mozilla" online @
