You are replying to this message

"Is the XUL standard sufficiently established so that theme artists can reintroduce their designs?"

Doesn't look like it. There was a post in the newsgroups recently, which says that the xul just underwent some major rewriting. They removed a lot of xul tags that they weren't using and they are now using the new css properties -moz-border-colors and -moz-image-region (I think they are double borders and the ability to clip a smaller portion of a large image, to reduce ram footprint).

And another message says that the outliner (The tree widget used throughout mozilla) also had a syntax change to it.

So things are still in a state of flux.
