  I'm sorry, I'm not expressing myself well, I know it!
  I build all sorts of web-based products...

  Basically, I was inquiring as to whether there
  was a way to 
  1)Connect to a MySQL database
  2)A wizard or a design tool to build an input form for a particular table.
    Just as MS-Access or OpenOffice Base can do. (See my answer to
  3)Save form as an HTML form  
  Experimenting with OpenOffice has been unsatisfactory.
  As for MS-Access, I no longer use Windows (linux and Mac), nor do
  I currently have a market for work on Windows.

  That is a general description. Like many web developers I
  use/develop HTML forms to edit MySQL databases.

> What are your "my view templates" ?
  ** Source documents for my MVC view templates **
  I use my own framework. It is derived by myself and used only for
  my clients or for my own apps.

  Sorry. Web based.
  I appreciate your help, but I believe that I can easily develop the tool
  that I need.

  It would connect to MySQL with a specific table - column names
  optional - as a parameter and produce an input form - I could do
  in good time, but since I am self-employed, time is money for me,
  thus I looked for a shortcut and it appears none is available that
  would suit me:

  Since a I use a special markup for Javascript validation, I
  would have to add that by hand. My tool, since it would
  "understand" my framework could add most of the markup. 

  thanks again
