Series of Mozilla Tutorials in UK 'Linux Format' Magazine

Friday April 11th, 2003

Brian King writes: "Linux Format is currently running a series of articles/tutorials about Mozilla. Issue 37 (February 2003) did a piece called Mozilla: Skinning the beast while issue 38 (March 2003) has numerous tips and tricks including adding a sidebar, customising the throbber, and changing userchrome, usercontent and user.js in profiles.

"Unfortunately, the archives section on the website does not contain the articles, so I would recommend going out and trying to pick up a copy. It is a British magazine, and should be available from many good magazine vendors throughout Europe, but I am not sure of its availability elsewhere."

It looks like issue 39 has some information about customising Mozilla too. Future Publishing's magazines page has details about back issues and there's also a section on overseas distribution. In addition, international subscriptions of Linux Format are also available.

The uni of wollongong (UoW), its 1-2hrs south of [ the center of] Sydney if your wondering, the UniCentre there has huge array of international magazines. And in passing I saw LinuxFormat there the other day, might check it for the Mozilla stuff.

You can find the Linux Format magazine in Montreal at Camelot. It's one issue late and cost about 22$ CAN.

That's expensive. I got it in Slovenia for 3290SIT (about 14 euros), which is even more expensive!

Does it really matter if Mozilla appears in a magazine? I am subscribed to a Dutch Linux magazine in which there also have been many articles about Mozilla.

It matters at least as much as it does when Mozilla appears in online magazines, and nobody questions reporting on that.

...when a magazine mentions Mozilla. The big win would be wintel focused mags spending this amount of time on it: with Linux mags, it's welcome but not surprising.

I think the big deal is someone is offering Mozilla tutorials/how-tos in hard copy. Im sure every IT magazine has mentioned Mozilla by now.
