New XForms draft drops simple syntax
15:56, 10 Jun 2001 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

The W3C HTML Activity has released a new draft of XForms which integrates much more tightly with W3C XML Schema.

The latest draft:

"incorporates new material agreed upon at the Boston face to face meeting, including the adoption of XML Schema replacing XForms Simple Syntax, as well as initial efforts at modularizing XForms and additional feedback from outside sources. "

This change means that the section describing simple syntax has been replaced by a section on using W3C XML Schema types, and two types - currency and monetary - are defined using W3C XML Schema.

The draft also moves from discussion of XForms Dynamic Constraints Lanugage to more direct XPath integration.

Appendix C provides a list of changes.
