This is a rant…
I hate HTML based forms. Since I started scrapping together bits of html a decade ago, forms have not significantly changed. They are still the same clunky limited user feedback interface they have always been. We’re building 2K5 website with the exact same level of technology we had in 1995.
There’s no end to my complaints about HTML forms. My core complaint is the lack of evolution since their inception. I hope that, soon, we see a rebirth of forms providing a wider range of standard data types, easier implementation and more extensive customization.
