Subject Re: CForms and HEAD tag
Date Fri, 27 Aug 2004 06:18:39 GMT
Well, I don't think is is such a good idea; I think
stylesheets need to each concentrate on managing 
their subset (or "type" if you like) of XML - what I do 
is have a  wrapper page which has equivalent "pseudo" 
HTML elements; transformation of these is done by 
my generic stylesheet, leaving the specialised forms
stylesheets to style the forms elements.

I agree the "outer" forms stylesheets may need to
be adapted for your specific case; I do not think 
the way they assume <head> elements is always
useful either; but then they are easy enough to 
override anyway.

ie. don't start patching something which does not
need a patch ;-)

I'll take it as a feature then :)

Maybe the framework should be a bit more defensive and create the head

tag if it's not there. I only just started with cforms, so i'm not in a

position to start patching things just yet :(
