No Java Script is used so there can not be any data verification.When it is done this way, we can have a simple HTML form that has very little demand on the browser.XML is the better choice because Mozilla and IE would display the XML structure. If you are using a really old browser that does not support fieldset, you may choose not to use it.The bottom options in the form generator is for modification of XML data structure, and it will be discussed on a different chapter. No attempt has been made to produce an aesthetically pleasing form. However you can customize the form to your taste by using CSS.You can put the style information in the style box of the generator form. XMLattribute This set all the attribute label to be offset of 10 pixel and display as italic.The classes are XMLcomplex Content, XMLmixed Content, XMLsimple Content, XMLsimple Type, XMLattribute and you can give them style attributes.If you have XML data in the text field, you may hit the line number button to help to locate the data.

in the form generator, if you pick the option to break down tag into words in labels, then the editor would try its best to do it and here is how the editing document will look like. The capitalization of each word follows the first letter of the tag.Afterwards you can go and read about editing the structure of XML document. We also reproduce that generator screen here in case you are reading from a hard copy.This is an actual form (minus some features) so you can use it directly.You can compare with the previous form to see the difference. If "_" is in the label then it is changed to space. This is not perfect and that is why USPrice becomes "US Price".In future we may need more options to have finer control.

Even though these two approaches are very different, nonetheless we can use the same HTML form element structure for both of them.
