Subject Re: [Announcement] XMLForm 0.81 available in Scratchpad

Great question.

I held on selectMany, because I wanted other peoples input.
There are different ways it can be implemented.

One possible implementation is to convert a selectMany in a similar way as
During transformation (XMLFormTransformet) list all values from the
underlying collection (as <value> tags).
Then when transforming all enlisted <item> tags in xmlform2html.xsl, convert
selectmany  to <select MULTIPLE>, mark as selected all <item> tags which
have values matching the value of <value> tags.
This is just one option. Additionally some support for the selectUI
attribute would make sence.
It's XSD type is:
  <xsd:simpleType name="selectUIType">
    <xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">
      <xsd:enumeration value="radioGroup"/>
      <xsd:enumeration value="checkboxGroup"/>
      <xsd:enumeration value="pulldown"/>
      <xsd:enumeration value="listbox"/>
      <xsd:enumeration value="combo"/>
  <xsd:simpleType name

What do you think?

I haven't started on the implementation, so if you have the itch, feel free
the scratch it.
