XForms Tutorial and Cookbook Voted Featured Wikibook!

I am happy to announce that the XForms Tutorial and Cookbook that I have been working on for over a year been voted a "Featured Book" on the wikibooks web site. A quote from the award:

XForms is a featured book on Wikibooks because it contains substantial content, it is well-formatted, and the Wikibooks community has decided to feature it on the main page or in other places. Please continue to improve it and thanks for the great work so far!

Here are some stats on the book so far: 90 sample programs
116 chapters
626 edits
28,811 words
29 registered authors

One of the big tasks is to start to move some of the advanced XForms examples that require siginficant server-side logic to a seperate server-specific book. As a pilot I have started an XRX cookbook for people using REST interfaces and the eXist server.

I would like to thank the over 30 others that have contributed ideas and content to this wikibook. We still have lots of work to do to cleanup the example programs, make them more consistent and add additional examples for new XForms students. But I believe it is one of the best examples of collaborative training that I have worked on in the last few years.

Congratulations, Dan! Awesome work. The examples are truly useful as "reference" - especially when things are not working as one imagined they would.
