      I've been looking at this for a while now. I really liked jqtransform but had problems with <select>.

      I've started using uniform and that's great, it also handles input type=file

    I do not possess too much idea about html and forms, but from what I see over here, it is quite interesting. I guess I need to visit this site again to read updated comments by others and the original poster.
