Transition Request for FPWD for "XForms for HTML"

This is a transition request for a first public working draft (and 
therefore for a shortname) for:

1. Document title, URIs, estimated publication date
                XForms for HTML

                As early as practicable (approximately 12 Dec 2008)

This is the document provisionally called "XForms Transitional" in the 
Forms WG Charter

2. The document Abstract and Status sections, either by reference (e.g., 
the URI to the document) or direct inclusion.
(See below)

3. A statement whether or not the group considers the document to be a 
delta specification. This statement is only required for documents 
expected to become normative Recommendations under the W3C Patent Policy.

This is not a delta specification.

4. Evidence that the group has satisfied the transition requirements.
This is a FPWD.

5. Record of the decision to request the transition


XForms for HTML provides a set of attributes and script methods that can 
be used by the tags or elements of an HTML or XHTML web page to simplify 
the integration of data-intensive interactive processing capabilities from 
XForms. The semantics of the attributes are mapped to the rich XForms 
model-view-controller-connector architecture, thereby allowing web 
application authors a smoother, selective migration path to the 
higher-order behaviors available from the full element markup available in 
modules of XForms.
