XHTML2 is the proposed next version of XHTML. Its aims include:
- As generic XML as possible: if a facility exists in XML, try to use that
rather than duplicating it. 
- Less presentation, more structure: use stylesheets for defining presentation. 
- More usability: within the constraints of XML, try to make the language easy
to write, and make the resulting documents easy to use. 
- More accessibility: some call it 'designing for our future selves' - the
design should be as inclusive as possible. 
- Better internationalization: since it is a World Wide Web. 
... and much more

XForms is the new technology that replaces HTML Forms.
HTML Forms, introduced in 1993, were the basis of the e-commerce revolution.
After a decade of experience it has become clear how to improve on them, for the
end user, the author, and the owners of the services that the forms are
addressing. XForms is the new technology, announced in October 2003, that
replaces HTML Forms.
