Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

The XForms Institute announced the launch of its new Web service, currently in beta: Free Online XForms Validation. The site also hosts interactive XForms tutorials and content from the O’Reilly book, XForms Essentials authored by Micah Dubinko.

The online service validates XForms documents by URL, file upload and text area input options are coming soon. If an XForms document is not available, the site provides several XForm sample documents to try and an XForms Bookmarklet will allow users to validate from their own browser.

XForms is W3C’s name for a specification of Web forms that can be used with a wide variety of platforms including desktop computers, hand helds, information appliances, and even paper.

Additional information about XForms can be found at the XForms FAQ and XForms for HTML authors both at the W3C.

XForms 1.0 became a recommendation on October 14th , 2003.
