FORMs are a wickedly powerful UI tool. They have not been refreshed in several years. The XML community still thinks forms are sufficient, and should remain isolated in HTML.

* CSS/XSL work on 'behavior sheets': how to manipulate focus, visibility of panes (as in an inspector).
Mission: any UI should be representable as markup
