Subject Table-less forms for your webapp
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2005 15:12:33 GMT
I think this might be useful for CForms:

Using CSS to control the layout of forms could be a big step in the 
direction of a better SoC for CForms. Presently, if you want to change 
the way fields are layed out in a form, you have to hack the sample XSL 
stylesheets, which amounts to forking them, with all the problems this 
brings. Or you can write your own, which is not better.

Having layout in CSS means that you can change it without touching the 
XSLT and the sometimes complex logic it implements.

This is just FYI. I have no time at the moment to look at this any 
deeper, unfortunately.
