This issue usually occurs in IE 6 if your form html contains CSS absolute positioning. What happens then is when you try to highlight text, either nothing happens or IE selects the entire block of text. Since the discovery of this obscure bug in IE 6, many workarounds have been proposed, one of them being the addition of an xml tag at the beginning of your html form like this:
However, one of our users recently noticed that the mentioned xml tag above broke the backend code generated by Web Form Factory... Until now. WFF has now been updated to address this issue and a few others as well.
WFF should now be able to detect if an xml tag is present in your form and wherever it finds it, it will transform it into valid PHP code like this:
<?php echo "<?xml version='1.0'?>"; ?>
Hopefully, if you’ve encountered this issue before, you can now resume using WFF to generate the backend code to all your web forms.
This is a weblog about the Web Form Factory (WFF) project and webforms in general.
Web Form Factory is an open source web form generator which automatically creates and binds the backend code for any form it is provided with.
WFF is based on the POG project, another open source code generator
