   This discussion, while quite interesting, is clearly inappropriate for
this list - as Tim noted. But I do have a (hopefully) more relevant
question. As someone who has only begun to look into both
technologies/products, I have yet to determine whether each
technology/product will allow me to interact with their forms using standard
DOM/SAX methods.

   From what I've seen so far I'm concerned that this need to capture
presentation aspects of a form might be leading to proprietary development
within the underlying specs. I'm envisioning working with XML-based forms in
the context of a larger XML-enabled process and I'd hate to get tied into a
single product to support that requirement.

   Again, I haven't had a chance to go far enough yet. But feel free to
enlighten me please. Thanks.
