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!

"The interaction capabilities are nice but if you can't deliver a professional appearance, forget it!"

Ahh, did you read that page's title? ("Test #5") Did you note which menu the link to it is under in Mozilla? ("Debug")

It's a test, for debugging. It isn't a 100% polished, all singing, all dancing, killer post-it-note application. It was used to test and debug XBL. It's useful as an example. It isn't useful as an application. How many teach-yourself books give you 100% complete applications with a professional appearance? Not many.

Given that it was constructed using XHTML, ECMAScript and CSS, it *would* be possible to make it look and work as professionally as any web site out there, but why bother for a demo meant for testing and debugging?
