You make a good point about the number of bugs for components other than Mozilla (and for other than the browser, which is what many people think of when you say Mozilla).

> there are bugs to track problems that are not due to Mozilla but other problems such as bad HTML usage [there are 408 bugs open for Component = Evangelism].

Many of these bugs start with [Layers] and are about the fact that Mozilla supports neither document.layers nor document.all. Although I somewhat understand not implementing Netscape 4's layers, it's becoming less and less understandable why Mozilla doesn't implement document.all. Go back to my previous post about not being able to justify the cost of changing a site for a barely used browser. Asking all these sites to re-code for Mozilla seems a losing battle. (But one I hope they win because it will make a better web.)
