Uh, wha'?  Are you wanting AI -- "hmmm, label says first name, OK,
'Hal', last name, must be surname, OK, '9000', mmm, SSAN?, sorry,
Dave, can't do that, mmm, address, mmm..."?

Do you want a program to read any arbitrary form and insert some
gibberish in every text field and check all the boxes?

Or is the author of the form intended to know what fields are in
the form, and what the responses should be?  :-)

A little more detail, pleez...
