[ANN]: XML-UI/XForms now works in IE


sorry to interrupt the IE6 debate. Instead of 
waiting and discussing whether Microsoft eventually 
does the right thing with IE, here is something that
actually works today and solves part of the XML 
UserInterface/Browser problem.

Mozquito has developed a markup language called
XML-UI, using the Modularization of XHTML, which is 
in essence XHTML+XForms, the new W3C XForms in use 
with XHTML, ie. the next generation of web forms in 

Last week, the accompanying product: 
"Mozquito XML WebAccess 2.0" went into public beta.

The server software transcodes XML-UI/XForms 
documents consisting of both the XHTML UI document 
and any referenced XML data source from markup into
JavaScript/DHTML - enabling existing browsers like
IE5 to process XML-UI/XForms documents - as if 
there was native browser support for XForms.

I recently gave a basic "Hello World" XML-UI/XForms
tutorial on the www-forms@w3.org mailing list [1].

Some initial XML-UI/XForms examples running e.g. in
IE5 can be seen at [2].

We set up a free FTP access to a Trial Server that
has XML WebAccess 2.0 installed. How to upload and
test-drive your XML-UI/XForms see [3].

For anything else (product details, beta download, 
etc.), please visit the Mozquito Website [4].

Thanks for listening,

- Sebastian Schnitzenbaumer
