Other folks have already provided leads... only thing I've got to add is 
that there's a *range* of projects which could fit the above 
description... keeping a live relationship between an electronic 
document and a remote database, being able to interconvert between edocs 
and paper (via 2D bar tags to redigitalize form inputs, eg), 
authenticating whether an edoc is a legit copy of the info in the 
database (authentication), etc.

If you just want them to be able to store an HTML form on their hard 
drive then it's a pretty simple problem, and lots of .NET extensions are 
available for the task.
