Dear all,

If you are following the various discussions on Ajax (can you avoid them!)
then you might be interested in a blog I've written on why XForms is better:

  Ajax, Hard Facts, Brass Tacks ... and Bad Slacks

  "[A]s many have said ... XMLHttpRequest is not a newly devised technique,
  but rather a generally accepted replacement for a very old technique. But
  ultimately that technique is a workaround since the real problem is ...
  HTML forms."


A follow-up blog will show how to do Google Suggest with XForms.
