certainly. I personally would not write a form onto paper as though it were a list. I am grateful that putting a form into a list greatly assists me in the presentation aspects of that form, which is no trifling matter.

Yet, there are aspects OF a form which I can see as bending to what a list is, almost in the same sense that, in programming, pretty much everything could be viewed as an array..your first name is an array of the letters c, o, r and y.

Bare Knuckle reality: the current state of css and html leaves us with greatly improved, still yet lacking, tools for presentation. Lots of accepted/respected techniques are often described as hacks, tho they do work reliably.

Enough spouting from me..thank you for your answers.
