Just to get the story straight. Firebird is a real brand name/trademark. It's not a generic term. In contrast XUL stands for XML UI Language and thus it's a generic term like SQL or DB or DBMS. For example, there's Firebird SQL, Oracle SQL, Microsoft SQL and so on. In the the same way there's Mozilla XUL, Luxor XUL, Thinlet XUL, Macromedia XUL and so on.
