Laura, if we talking about forms, then I think first of all you want 
look at the Formulator product: http://zope.org/Members/infrae/Formulator
Second, just *call* the Formulator's form from anywhere to be rendered and 
validated automatically.
Third, bind an action (Python Script or so) and store your data somewhere.
This is you will no more waste a time to create and validate forms. 
Formulator will do it for you.
