<snip/> XForms Example

   Rather than waiting for xforms to be implemented in UAs, it might be
simpler to have a simple server side script that collects the data,
checks the payment method and forwards the transaction to paypal if
required.  That way your form will always be submitted to the same place
initially, but processed according to the user's selections in the form.
