Hello Andrew,

Chibacon, maintainer of the Chiba project, is developing a browser-based 
formbuilder tool. Currently only xhtml is supported as host-language but 
the concept is extensible to allow other markup languages later. A 
first, free preview edition will be released during March if all goes 
well. Our current Schema2XForms tool which converts XML Schema to 
complete XForms documents will be reworked and also be released soon in 
a new version.
