Hi everyone,

The "Introduction to XForms" tutorial that I posted a short while ago has
been extended to include a 'how to' on searching Flickr. The resulting
application shows how complex tasks can easily be performed with XForms
mark-up. If you want to see a video of the application in action, you can go
here:

Highlights of the application include:

  * animated display when the search results
    are returned, using only CSS rules;

  * a range control that controls the size of
    the images returned. The images resize
    immediately thanks to the use of
    @incremental;

  * tying of switch and case to submissions events
    so that the form has different sections for
    'in progress' and 'complete'.

Some background on why we chose Flickr is here:
