XForms built into Mozilla

Not a reality yet, but a link to an announcement is pasted below. Since Sun is standardizing on Mozilla soon, maybe internal web applications here can eventually begin taking advantage of this new technology. I also hope Mozilla's XForms support will be more forthcoming than its SVG support; i.e. you won't have to download obscure builds and/or it won't involve licensing wierdness with libraries.

Mozilla's Announcement (mozilla.org)
XForms Specification (w3.org)

Comments:

Actually, SVG support is built into the current downloads @ mozilla.org -- however, so is Xprint. In fact, you cannot print except with Xprint, which is a stinking pile of overengineered underdocumented crap. Thus, current builds are unusable. (No smiley here)

Volker A. Brandt: Maybe you should learn to read the FAQ (which has an answer for your problem) before spamming all blogs at blogs.sun.com.
