Can browser-based InfoPath form handle exceptions from web service?

Greetings,

Environment: MOSS 2007 Enterprise, InfoPath Form Services, Web service (ASMX) written in C#

InfoPath form was invoked using InfoPath 2007 client and through the browser. This form submits data to web service. The web service inserts data into the back-end after validation.

Q1:
If the web service throws an exception, InfoPath 2007 client displays the exception but the browser-based InfoPath form just says the form was not submitted successfully. In the browser-based InfoPath form, can we display the exception or a custom message depending on the exception received?

Q2:
Let's assume that clicking on Submit in InfoPath submits data to a web service. The web service  evaluates incoming data, the data fails validation and web service returns an integer or a string back (say 5 or Order number is invalid) back. Can InfoPath, especially browser-based forms, display this information to the user?

Thank you.

I beleive the key is to call the webservices via code, then you could interpret and create handlers for the return messages.

There may be some help on www.infopathdev.com regarding how to setup the webservice.
