Assuming I'm working with Firefox 1.5b2, and the preview release 2 of 
Mozilla's XForms extension, what are my options to achieve this? Can 
xpath toggle the visibility of one of two <div>'s, depending on the DB 
insert success/failure?

One option I looked at previously was setting the HTTP response code to 
499 upon server-side validation failure, hoping to trigger the 
xforms-submit-error event - but apparently Mozilla's xforms processor 
doesn't (yet) behave this way.

Excuse me if these questions are way off base - I'm really on the fringe 
of my knowledge here.
