XForms Essentials
An online book giving you a guided tour of XForms.

XForms is the future of online forms as envisioned by the W3C. Drawing on other W3C standards like XML Schema, XPath, and XML Events, XForms tries to address some of the limitations with the current HTML forms model. Other strengths that XForms brings to the table is the separation of data from presentation, strong data typing, the ability to submit XML data to servers instead of name/value pairs, and a descriptive way to author forms so that they can be displayed by a wide variety of devices. XForms is a W3C specification.
