Extensions to HTML and the DOM to make it more suitable for application development, also sometimes called "HTML5".
Status: This draft is in active development. Expect to see big changes in the coming days and weeks.
This specification defines Web Forms 2.0, an extension to the forms features found in HTML 4.01's forms chapter. Web Forms 2.0 applies to both HTML and XHTML user agents, and provides new strongly-typed input fields, new attributes for defining constraints, a repeating model for declarative repeating of form sections, new DOM interfaces, new DOM events for validation and dependency tracking, and XML submission and initialization of forms. This specification also standardises and codifies existing practice in areas that have not been previously documented.
HTML4, XHTML1.1 and the DOM are thus extended in a manner which has a clear migration path from existing HTML forms, leveraging the knowledge authors have built up with their experience with HTML so far.
Status: This draft has a reasonable level of maturity and is not expected to change significantly in the future. A third call for comments has been published, and if the resulting comments are of limited impact, then a call for implementations will be published.
Some DOM and CSS extensions to create new form controls and widgets.
Status: This draft is in very early stages and is not yet being actively developed. It is currently host to a number of features that were specified for other drafts but were removed from those drafts for various reasons.
