Re: On form libraries

We have been using Zope at at Avand as the basis of our document management system since 2000, and we have a mature widget system which does client-side and server-side validation (including spell checking as a client-side validation module), handles javascript dependencies (so that scripts aren't imported multiple times), creates complex widgets ... see screenshot

The widgets rendered are the XP style list on the left, the two lists on the main panel, the Display options pseudo-dropdown(which persists user preferences as cookies).

I haven't checked out Tosca, but there might be some potential to cross polinate ideas. The code is fairly tailored towards our needs, and probably not suitable for reuse outside our own project.
