Actually, for the most part, both HTML forms and XForms are pretty 
useless without some kind of server-side component.  Why go to the 
trouble of putting together a decent form if you're only going to 
manipulate it with Javascript?

I was under the impression that both form libraries were created because 
it became necessary for the user to input information on a web page for 
server-side programming to work with.  Personally, the only 100% 
client-side uses of forms (period) I've ever seen have been insanely 
basic; generally, the complicated logic is kept on the server-side.
