Subject Re: CForms-XUL project information

I forgot one of the most important things:

An form element does not exists in XUL. Yes, it is still possible to 
embed HTML tags, but this is not the preferred way.
In XUL the request is send to the server as an http request independent 
of the page load using JavaScript. It is also possible to trigger a SOAP 
or XML-RPC call.

It means, it would be still possible to send an http request like an 
html form does. But what is coming back has nothing to do with the next 
page to be displayed. It should be something the JavaScript can process 
like a return code.

On the other hand it is more flexible. It is possible to trigger server 
side validation without any page update or showing the status of 
asynchronous processes runnning on the server.
