PDF Forms in Salesforce

Hi all,


I saw this blog post about using forms in Salesforce:



How do I figure out the field names for the forms? Say I download W2 form from the web, Is there a tool that tells me the field names from this form, so I could plug into the XFDF?


Also is it possible to generate a pdf form using visualforce? Not an attachment of an existing form, but a form from scratch, so it has certain editable fields and certain read-only values populated using data from Salesforce?


Thanks in advance,



I'm also very curious if it is possible to generate a pdf form using visual force. Currently I have only been able to generate read-only PDFs.  I tried putting both html form tags and apex form tags in the markup for the VisualForce page but didn't have any luck with either approach.
