Subject Re: CForms: setting attributes in the form definition
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2004 08:47:47 GMT

just had one spontanuos thought:
maybe we can reduce typing somewhat if we add those attributes by using 
a different namespace (rather then, the default one which seems to be so 
commong for attributes)

(possibly reusing 'fd', or introducing 'fa' for form-atributes)

your sample would become:
<fd:field id="foo" fa:bar="baz">

as said: just a thought
