None of the form systems (there's more than one) are in ISO unless I've
missed something. However, to say it's vendors-specific is a slight
stretch: OpenOffice.org, for example, has pretty wonderful forms support
built into it, and that's a *huge* selling point over MS Office - in
fact, probably one of the biggest differentiating features.

I don't know which viewers support what but I know evince has form
support too.
