Since (as far as I know) HTTP will only pass strings(untyped values) to a server, you will have to build the XML on the client. This is easily done with JavaScript (and probably any other script your browser supports). The simplest way is to concatenate strings. I have found it useful to create a JavaScript object to represent the form and give it an .xml method which returns a well-formed XML document in a string which is sent via the query string to the server where you can parse it into a DOM Document and extract the values with XPath.

I have done this with IIS and Apache (using mod_PLSQL on the Oracle 9iAS).

 I am generating HTML from XML via XSL. The original XML file is not
predictable in content, but my XSL is still smart enough to convert xml
nodes with certain names to specific html form objects. Great, so far.

So, now I want the users' form selections to be written back as xml when
the html form is submitted. Is there a way to do this? So, basically, I
would need to go through all HTML form objects in that page, and write
them as xml nodes along with their selected/user defined values.
Make sense?

Thanks a lot-
