Ah right, well spotted. Then you could use it like this.

<input ref="foo label="foo">
    <action ev:event="xforms-value-changed" type="text/fortran">
           WRITE (6, 601)
       601 FORMAT("HELLO")
    </action>
    <action ev:event="xforms-action-error">
       <message>Wrong action type</message>
    </action>
</input>
