Hi Alain,

Would you permit any member of the W3C Forms Working Group to take a 
snapshot of the files at [1] constituting your implementation report, and 
publish them into the W3C Forms working group web space alongside the 
other implementation reports?   For consistency with the other reports, we 
also would like your permission to comment out the links to the results 
files for chapter 1 and appendices G and H as these are either duplicate 
tests or tests of non-normative content.


You can, of course, ask for those files to be updated later with more 

Thank you,

Test Suite Report for XSLTForms


As suggested by Leigh Klotz, I write this note to say that I have produced 
a partial implementation report for XForms 1.1 with XSLTForms (
http://www.agencexml/com/xsltforms/), my opensource project. 

Anybody can access it at this link : 

It has been updated according to the last Test Suite I downloaded at 

It is, of course, possible to click on each test to see how it works with 

No manual modification has been applied to the Test Suite but, because an 
XSLT 1.0 transformation is required to first convert XForms to 
XHTML+Javascript, the corresponding processing instruction is dynamically 
added by an XML script which is executed on my web server (Apache+PHP5. 
Submission action attribute is also changed to avoid cross domain 
limitations. For CSS stylesheets to be accessed from XSLT 1.0, a document 
element is added to transform them into well-formed XML documents. 

Just green colored tests are effectively passed, while yellow colored 
tests are only partially passed and red colored tests are not passed. 

Because XSLTForms is just at a beta version, there are numerous non passed 
tests due to lack of some data types or functions (even if they can easily 
be added...). As usual, some misplaced bugs can block many tests... 

Tests have been performed mainly with FireFox 3.0.6 but also with Internet 
Explorer 7 and Opera 9.62 (there are still some bugs with Safari/Chrome). 

Because of the lack of namespace axis support in the FireFox XSLT engine, 
2 tests (7.2.a and 7.2.f) don't work only with FireFox (the same prefix 
for the instance and the bindings should be used for the 2 tests to be 
passed with FireFox). CSS rendering performed by Internet Explorer might 
differ from what other browsers do. 

I would appreciate a reference to XSLTForms being added in the "XForms 
Implementations" page (
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/XForms_Implementations). Is it 
possible ?
