But he made it seem unneccesarily complex to serve up an XUL file. All I needed to do (knowing that my ISP runs Apache) was put a one-line .htaccess file in the directory with the XUL file, and presto, I'm serving up XUL applications! I think the ease of application authoring and setup should really be pushed, because I think XUL will prove to be a big part of winning businesses over to Gecko-based browsers. It's so much more flexible than the MS offerings, and it's all open standards.
