I work for a commercially neutral, non-profit-making organisation in  
the UK financial services sector. I know of a number of banks and  
financial service organisations, in the UK and elsewhere either using  
or investigating XForms solutions. They are almost uniformly shy of  
publicly letting on that they are doing so, especially when other  
vendor companies are within earshot. All I can say is that the horse  
you are flogging is far from dead.

I agree that it would be very nice to have some case studies.

All the best

Mark
