This document presents a description of the architecture, concepts, processing model, and terminology underlying XForms, the next generation Web forms. Except as noted, it represents the current consensus of the Working Group.
"XForms" is W3C's name for a specification of Web forms that can be used with a wide variety of platforms of varying capabilities, for instance, desktop computers, television sets, personal digital assistants, cell phones, computer peripherals and even paper.

This is a Working Draft that incorporates decisions made at the Working Group's October 2000 face to face meeting, and is being released to the public to encourage feedback and comments.
This Working Draft is the latest version in a document series previously named XForms 1.0 Data Model. The Working Group decided to change the name from XForms 1.0 Data Model into XForms 1.0 as of this version based on feedback the Working Group received from previous Working Drafts.
