This paper presents XForm - a proposal for a general and powerful mechanism for handling forms in XML. XForm defines form - related constructs independent of any particular XML language and set of form controls. It defines the notion of formsheets as a mechanism for computing form values on the client, form values being arbitrary, typed XML documents. This enables a symmetrical exchange of data between clients and servers which is useful for example for database and workflow applications. Formsheets can be written in a variety of languages - we argue that the document transformation capabilities of XSL stylesheets make them an elegant choice.
