Comments on the second stable draft of the Web Forms 2.0 specification are 

The draft is considered reasonably stable and mature, and it is hoped that 
it will progress to a call for implementations in a few months. This 
publication should therefore be considered the last explicit call for 
comments for this draft.

The Web Forms 2.0 specification addresses requests made for new features 
to be added to the Forms features in HTML4. New features include new input 
control types for dates, times, e-mail addresses, and numbers; a new 
client-side validation model; a way to mark input controls as required; a 
repetition model; control over form submission so that forms can be 
updated instead of causing the page to be replaced; and more.

Comments should be sent to the WHATWG mailing list.


The Web Hypertext Applications Technology Working Group is a loose, 
unofficial, and open collaboration of Web browser manufacturers and 
interested parties. The group aims to develop specifications based on HTML 
and related technologies to ease the deployment of interoperable Web 
Applications, with the intention of submitting the results to a standards 
organisation. This submission would then form the basis of work on 
formally extending HTML in the standards track.

working group Web site at http://whatwg.org/.
