Not really. You might wonna check out the XUL motor catalog at the Open XUL Alliance to see that it's a careful selection. You're also welcome to join the xul-talk mailing list @ <http://lists.sourceforge.…t/lists/listinfo/xul-talk> to work out an "official" definition if you feel like it.

I dare to disagree. XUL just has outgrown Mozilla. Face it.

> For example, UIML is nothing like XUL

I agree. UIML is worthless and you won't find it listed; so is the Glade XML UI haystack, the Qt Designer XML UI haystack, the Sun Long-Term Persistance XML haystack, and many more.

Just to clearify Glade XML UI in contrast to UIML works great for what it is designed. However, it's not targeted at people like HTML and pretty much unusable with any forms designer.
