This weekend I did quite some reading on xForms (http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/)
If this is going to work out well (which I expect to happen) then this would place vfp developers in a great position.

xForms are meant to provide a way to do the basic validation of webforms on the browser itself, saving you a roundtrip to the server and back.
Imagine this:

You have a form with all the logic implemented in some way.
Next what you do is run a tool like xformGen (not available but I can imagine somebody creating it) and you have a form for the web that mostly acts the same as the desktop form.

By all means, take this advise:
Tie yourself to the chair first.
Then browse to the above link.
Start reading.

The reason to tie yourself to the chair first is that the information is so good that you might jump a giant hole in your ceiling . (fortunately my wife could prevent me from doing that.)
