Frames and Forms

Today I implemented frames and form-submit support for GNU Classpath’s HTML renderer package. This completes (API-wise) this package against JDK5. Of course it’s sill full of bugs and doesn’t support every HTML/CSS feature out there, and not even what is supported by the reference implementation. Ah and coincidentally this also API-completes Swing up to JDK1.3 and almost (one method to go) from JDK1.4.
OTOH, the new frame support implements yet another feature that the reference impl can’t render correctly, which is frames in a grid layout. So we’re getting into a situation where we support CSS or HTML features that the reference doesn’t and vice versa. I am really looking forward to a possible merge in half a year. Let’s see what we can improve until then šŸ˜‰
