Kinger! We're crossing that bridge right now. Not O'Reilly, I'm afraid. Say, what was your friend's name who spent the night on the couch that one time with the foxtail-ridden blanket? -I/O

Must be Dave you are thinking about. That was a great day in HMB. Good luck with finding a publisher - try New Riders, Wiley, Apress ... more here <http://publishing.about.com/cs/computerbks/> and here <http://www.writerswrite.c…m/books/bookpubs/comp.htm>

Great book. I wish chapter 8 titled "Building the WebLock UI" were much longer. It's a great XUL teaser, though. I wrote up a story in the XUL News Wire titled "Book Freebie: Creating XPCOM Components" online @ <http://article.gmane.org/…comp.lang.xul.announce/27>
