You might want to read about this issue on the Mozilla XForms mailing


I believe they have a bug filed that says that in Mozilla, XForms
elements generated by XSLT are not recognized.

Subject: embedding an XForms in XSLT

I try to include an XForms in a code XSLT, and send it to Firefox to
transform it.

I give you a simple example:

File prueba.xml contain trivial information...

File prueba.xsl include model in 'head' section, and a basic 'input' and
'submit' in body section.




<?xml version="1.0" encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="prueba.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>
  <nombre>Processing an XForms in XSLT</nombre>
  <contacto>999 99 99 99 </contacto>




<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xf="http://www.w3.org/2002/xforms"  >

<xsl:output method="xml" version="2.0" encoding="UTF-8" indent="no"

<xsl:template match='/'>
  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
xmlns:xf="http://www.w3.org/2002/xforms" >
 <meta content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=ISO-8859-1"
        <title>Generado con prueba.xsl</title>
                <xf:model id="datos">
                        <xf:instance xmlns="">
                        <xf:submission action="http://localhost"

        <xsl:copy-of select='.'/>
        <h1> <xsl:apply-templates /> </h1>
        <xf:input ref="nom" model="datos">

I process with xsltproc:

> xsltproc -o prueba.xhtml  prueba.xml 

If I try to open file prueba.xhtml with Firefox, i can see the format of

But... If i try to open prueba.xml with Firefox, model XForms is not
recognized. Then, information in <nom> is not displayed in input XForms.
And submission button not send you to anywhere...

It is possible embedd XForms in XSLT? Or exists any problem with Firefox
to understand this?

It is only an example, but it is sufficient to explain problems i have
to embedd XForms in a XSLT. 

I hope you see that it works well if we use before xsltproc to create an
XHTML file. But Firefox can't do it, or not understand de XFORMS model
into <stylesheet>.

Note: sorry, i don't write good English language...
