disagree  Eberhard Nietzer: in my opinion "in writing" is equivalent to "Schriftform", "Textform" is not the same, it includes electronic texts and faxes

disagree  Erik Werner: Following Eberhard Nietzer: I have a text with: schriftlich (unter Ausschluss der Textform) where this would have to be something other than "written form"
