  The MozillaZine reports that Doron Rosenberg has
announced that an add-on to enable support for XForms
in Gecko will be released soon, making Mozilla the
first major browser to support the W3C's next
generation XML-based Web forms standard. Users will be
able to add the feature to recent Mozilla builds via
the standard XPI extension mechanism. This is made
possible by the new extensible tag framework (XTF)
that allows new XML elements to be implemented in
Mozilla. As XTF is very new, users will need a recent
trunk build of the Mozilla Application Suite or
Mozilla Firefox to install XForms support (Mozilla 1.7
and Firefox 1.0 are too old). We understand that there
are currently no plans to include XForms in the
default builds.
