My understanding is that Mozilla, Microsoft, Opera and Safari have no 
plans to ship XForms support with the default browser. However, there are 
plugins available from Mozilla and IE to enable XForms support there, and 
there are tools that convert XForms on the server to HTML forms on the 
client so that it works even with down-level UAs.
