The "Web Aware" form template isn't really that complex. There isn't anything behind the scenes or invisible that is going on. Mostly the forms are just simpler. 4D translates forms into HTML left to right and top to bottom, object by object. On output forms, there is one thing worth noting - the rectangles around the fields that extend into the header and footer areas _are_ significant, and by removing or changing them you can see how it will affect the resulting HTML form. This topic is covered in more detail in our 4D web development training classes.
