Web forms have more intelligence capability that can be built in for prompting, selecting from pull-down lists and so on that we are all familiar with. Errors are avoided by edit check on input.

Q:Can we still update the forms?
Ans: The documents have a log-in security password like a protected document in Microsoft Word. This protected document simply has fields that you designate as not protected, for input. You can edit the forms as usual for major changes.
