This is my first post on this forum. I really took my time looking for similar threads but couldn't find them. I hope I am not double-posting.
To the point: Would it be too difficult (or maybe undesirable from the perspective of your design) to allow users to tag fields (simple, multi-line, etc.) and fieldsets with a class (good enough) or a list of classes (ideal)?
From my humble point of view, since you are already parsing some field types for tags like [id:xxx], |title:XXX or |err:XXX, it should not be hard to add parsing capabilities for one or more [class:XXX] or |class:XXX tags. I know I am evaluating this from the proverbial uninformed perspective, but I would like to read about your thoughts on this.
If you think this is doable, I would be willing to dedicate some time to look at your code (I think it is released under the GPL).
P.S.: From a fellow programmer: your product ROCKS; you are really good at this.

Not sure if Oliver shares the same view, but from my perspective, an additional class attribute wouldn't hurt but also doesn't add much value, except perhaps for very large form with many man groups of many fields differently styled form fields.
Since I've never seen such an application, I doubt that it'll make much sense to implement the class attribute.
You can already specify groups of fields (via fieldsets) and individual form fields (ID & custom IDs) via existing methods.
