"Earlier today, the W3C acknowledged the XBL Specification that AOL submitted on behalf of Mozilla.org. This is the first document to be published on the W3C site that has "Mozilla" written all over it, and so is a great reason for rejoicing!!!

The next step is for the CSS Working Group within the W3C to discuss the submission in more depth, with a view to come up with a W3C Recommendation which is liked by all those concerned (including the competition of course)."

You can also read what the W3C thought of XBL. A great day for Mozilla indeed!

Maybe I did express myself badly. Netscape/AOL released the source. Netscape/AOL are paying most of the engineers working on Mozilla but I think that even if AOL pulled all its fundings for Mozilla it is here to stay. If AOL pulled its funding of Mozilla that would probably be the hardest blow imaginary.
