XForms

XForms is a W3C Working Draft for defining a generic form language in XML, and also in sending the server an XML document containing the form's submitted data. Because both the form and its submitted data are XML, they lend themselves easily to manipulation by the Core DOM. The datatypes of XML Schemas provide an arrangement for basic form validation—validating a date, for instance, to make sure it is legitimate.

Currently, no browser implements XForms in any fashion. I don't know of any plug-ins or servers for XForms either. Nonetheless, this technology is on my watch list.
