had me fooled! I didn't have you down as a fan after reading your blog.

"Scripting is bad for accessibility. False."

I'm not so sure that was a correction. I thought it to be a bit of an 
outburst to be honest. Don't get me wrong, I'm learning to use XForms 
myself right now, so I don't have strong opinions either way, but it 
strikes me that there is a definite progression in terms of 
accessibility with XForms vs HTML and I was quite surprised at your remark.
