I just got the IBM SVG viewer up and running today. 

Included with the viewer were over 60 example files demonstrating a lot of 
different characteristics of the SVG spec but the one thing that caught me 
off guard were the great forms examples which basically had no graphics in 
them but lots of tabular data and formatted text. After seeing those great 
examples of how SVG could be used to create forms it suddenly occured to me 
that I may be changing the way I create my html forms in the very near 
future. I was thinking of SVG only in terms of the graphics I might be able 
to create and not forms. 

My question to those individuals more familiar with SVG than my 1 day of 
experience is, once svg browser plugins are available do you think that 
database front end forms designers will fairly quickly see the light and move 
to SVG tags for forms layout?
