Cool Introduction To Mozilla's Technologies

Shelley Powers writes, "Archimedes once said of the lever, 'Give me a place to stand, and I can move the earth'. I'd like to modify that quote and say 'Give me XML, CSS, and a little script, and I can create any application'.

"The technology that inspires this statement is all bundled up under the misnomer 'browser', and goes by the name of Mozilla or Navigator 6.0.

"I say 'misnomer' because though all of the components delivered with each product do make up a browser, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. In fact, downloading Mozilla/Navigator 6.0 is like getting your own little toolbox of goodies that you can then use to create your own applications.

"Once you have a better idea of the functionality that's easily accessible, you'll be just like me -- you can't wait to create your first application. So here's mine, an online interactive tutorial that covers the functionality included with Mozilla/Navigator 6.0.

"There are two ways to view the tutorial: viewing the tutorial pages directly or using the Tutorial Viewer, created using XUL."

I was referring to the answers in this forum. Based on that, I can assume Mozilla cannot handle file conversions or saving files. That would be a big limitation for a tool used as a foundation for applications.

I do recognize that the lack of answers does not mean Mozilla does not have this capability. Still, I chose to answer based on the feedback I received and acknowledged that the answer was based on that feedback.
