Both this class and Manuel Lemos' form generation class (from
phpclasses.org) will create beautiful forms for you. However, you may
find that the amount of [repetitive] typing you do will be equivalent or
greater than simply creating the form by hand.
The best solution would probably be a form you fill out which asks you
about all the fields you want, and then generates the code to paint the
form. There are commercial solutions which do this, and some (not that
great) free solutions. I'm working on one myself, which will eventually
be a sourceforge/freshmeat project.
This sounds Great. Thanks for the advise. Just as a matter of interest do
you know the location / path to Jay's class? I tried searching the archives
but couldn't find it/
