Oooooh. Intriguing. I've had a nose through (looks fine in Netscape 7
too, btw) and it seems pretty cool, although as I don't know CF I
couldn't figure out *exactly* what it does, although from what I could
make out, it builds forms for manipulating the data of the supplied db?
Am I embarrassingly far off the mark or what?

Documentation. A tiny bit more detail on it's precise purpose would be
nice. Maybe I'm just tired, but I'm still unsure of it's entire scope -
as in exactly how much and what level of code it can/will build.

Form Validation. On Step 1, clicking "Next" without completing all
inputs throws up a CF error. Preselect values perhaps, especially those
where alternatives are disabled? On remaining steps, omitting all values
just ends up in a blank result.
