I took no offense when you wrote about "the shackles of W3C standards." I merely pointed out that XUL is very much tied to those selfsame standards, and that to develop a language that is not dependent on having a DOM or on styling using CSS (e.g., for padding and margins) is to create a new markup language all together. It may be very similar to XUL, but it wouldn't *be* XUL.

I respectfully request that you stop using the term XUL, which is used to describe a very specific XML markup language with a specific namespace, to describe other implementations of XML user interfaces. You are simply creating confusion with this co-opting of the XUL acronym.
