I had used phpHtmlLib (phpthmllib.newsblob.com) for a couple projects before
I started using WordPress and had really become dependent on the Form
Processor.  When I started working on a plugin to manage our local swim
team, I knew it would require a lot of forms and there a few widgets I
wanted to use so I adapted the PHP 4 compatible thread of phpHtmlLib to be a
WordPress plugin.

In some ways it qualifies as a plugin framework as it provides a whole slew
of base classes that can be used in other plugins.  There is obviously some
functionality that goes unused but I'll trade that for the ease of building
and processing forms.

If you are interested in looking at the phpHtmlLib WordPress plugin, you can
download it here:
