      Getting Started 
      </h1>
      <p>
      Thank you for downloading FiForms PHP classes. Please see the 
      <a href="README.txt">readme</a> file  for instructions for setting up 
      FiForms. You may also want to try out some of the sample FiForms
      scripts found in the <a href="example/">example</a> directory. Note that
      you will need to run the 
      <a href="example/FiForms-sample.sql">FiForms-sample.sql</a> script on 
      your MySQL server before you can view the sample scripts.

      </p>

      FiForms PHP Projects
      </h1>
      <p>
      FiForms started as a collection of PHP classes for creating web-based
      data entry screens for a MySQL database. It has since grown into a 
      collection of projects addressing many aspects of web-database
      development needs. The FiForms package currently includes the 
      <b><a href="#FiForms">FiForms</a></b> data-entry classes and the 
      <b><a href="#FiReports">FiReports</a></b> XML report 
      generation scripts. New additions to the FiForms Projects will include
      <b>FiChecks</b>, an online PDF check printing solution for printing
      business checks, and <b>FiConnect</b>, a simple yet powerful
      database abstraction tool for use in your database-driven PHP projects.
      </p>
      <p>
      <b>Note: </b>FiForms is not meant to 
      provide a finished software product; rather it is meant to be an 
      extendable set of class libraries to be used in developing a
      software product.  
      </p>
      <p>
      <a name="FiForms" />
      <b>FiForms</b> creates a loose, modular hierarchy 
      of PHP classes which binds HTML input boxes to fields in a 
      MySQL database. FiForms does the work of querying the database,
      navigating through records, and outputting the data in HTML. All the
      developer has to do is declare the objects and set a few parameters.
      Thus, you can create a working web database by writing less than two 
      dozen lines of PHP script. 
      </p>
      <p>
      <a name="FiReports" />
      <b>FiReports</b> is a set of scripts designed to generate printable XML/HTML 
      reports from a simple PHP or XML definition. The included stylesheets
      allow the user to generate custom reports in XML, submit them to the
      server, and receive the results from the server in XML formatted to
      whatever stylesheet the user requests.
