CForms is meant to be able to work without Ajax. Now to achieve this, 
you have to tweak a bit the forms-field-styling.xsl to remove the 
<script src=""> related to Ajax (there are 2 of them).

It's a matter of running CForms samples (I write CForms by habit and 
because it's shorter than "the Forms block" -- the renaming was Woody 
--> Forms), just like every other sample when we're about to make a 
release ;-)

Hehe. No, I'm still in France. But it's one of these very infrequent 
nights where I have hard times to sleep...
