Please note that the WebFormsA spec has been updated in a number of ways 
described below.  The document is nearly ready for first public working 
draft, so we should be thinking in terms of getting a resolution to make 
this publication soon, since it need not have all technical content 
completed before FPWD.

1) Name changed from Forms-A to WebFormsA.  This removes the offending 
dash and restores the emphasis of this specification on our working group 
mission statement and key deliverable of our charter.  It will clearly 
communicate to the *full* web community that we are fully committed to 
specifications that cover forms on the web.

2) The submission attributes have been written.  Note particularly the 
attributes source, target and prune.

3) A section on runtime operations on form controls has been added in 
order to contain the increase() and decrease() operations, but also to add 
a description of other operations, esp. the ability to get and set values 
of form controls.

4) The section on additional form control attributes has been filled out. 
This has included label, hint, help and alert, but also others specific to 
select controls.

5) A full glossary has been completed.
