Form Rules for HTML Content

Users can browse HTML pages that contain forms. Form elements, such as input, can take a URL as a value. The default ruleset does not rewrite any form elements. The syntax for form rules is:

<Form source="/source.html" name="form1" field="field1"> [valuePatterns="pattern"] />

where /source.html is the URL of the HTML page containing the form, form1 is the name of the form, field1 is the field of the form to be rewritten, and pattern indicates the part of the field to be rewritten. All content that follows the pattern specified is rewritten.

The valuePatterns parameter is optional.
