Re: Submitting input-form data to server

It would be extremely nice if a set of predefined common attributes
could be defined so that you don't have to fill in your name, email
address, phone etc. by hand in every single form that comes along.
The client would recognize the attributes and supply default values
from some local configuration file.

It would also be nice if the same methods for forms could also be
used for regular email forms, so that parsers can be built to allow
widespread use for conference registration and the like.

(Clearly, this is marching in the direction of EDI, but that's a
different topic.)

Has anybody looked at how Wordperfect does their forms in their
office applications?
