3. Package contents

This package contains a tutorial and examples how to create PDF forms
using pdflatex with the hyperref and insdljs packages. The files
de/forms.pdf and en/forms.pdf are the german and english version of the
tutorial, the de/examples and en/examples directories contain the
LaTeX sources for the example forms.

We have three forms:
- ex00... is a form to request keys for employees.
  This form is developed step-by-step:
  ex0001: The initial version, contains all the form elements but looks ugly.
  ex0002: Form elements aligned in a table.
  ex0003: Equal widths for form elements, space between elements added.
  ex0004: Equal y-position for form elements and labels.
  ex0005: Form element border color changed.
  ex0006: Document level JavaScript added, processing Doc/Open event.
  ex0007: German umlauts corrected in the german version.
          \usepackage[...]{inputenc} is not longer used.
  ex0008: Processing WillPrint and DidPrint events (showing a message box).
  ex0009: Processing WillPrint and DidPrint events (color and font changes).
  ex0010: Processing form element events (validation).
  ex0011: Final version, the choice list is now editable (combo box style).

- ex0101  is a form to request software licenses and installations.
          This example shows how to initialize a choice list using
	  JavaScript variables.

- ex0201  is an interactive application for investment calculations.
