UIs for Creating Forms

I'm looking for examples of UIs that allow people to create their own
fill-in forms or modify existing forms. One that I've used is SurveyMonkey

http://www.surveymonkey.com/

Are there others that are especially good? Are there any that allow
WYSIWYG modifications?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Web Form Design book in progress

Hi all,
Just wanted to make folks aware, I recently began work on a book for
Rosenfeld Media about Web Form Design. I hoping there's genuine
interest on this list in the topic as Interaction Designers deal with
forms A LOT.

As such, if you have experiences, ideas, or best practices to share
from your work -I'd be very interested in hearing from you. Either
float me a note directly, leave a comment on the book in progress
site, or subscribe to the RSS feed there to simply stay in the loop
on discussions.

How to display 'required' form fields when vast majority are required

I am wondering how I might indicate (or not indicate) required fields on a
form where pretty much every field is required.

While in the past I've used the lazy man's convention of indicating required
fields with an asterisk, presenting a page where every label is preceded by
an asterisk seems ridiculous.

Yet, there may be other pages on the site with a more balanced mix of
required and optional fields, where I might wish to use asterisks.

Auto Completion of Form Fields

I am working on a client project, where the client is gradually
transitioning forms on their site to use auto completion (w/ AJAX). I
would like to visually signal to users which form fields are auto
completing and which ones are "static". I am wondering if there is a
"pattern" for alerting to users this type of functionality. We can
create something for this client's purpose, but I would like leverage
any convention, if there is already one out there.
