XUL discussed at News.com

Friday March 26th, 1999

From Joel Caris comes this news:

"This News.com article talks about XUL and the effects it might have on the web and application programming."

The article mentions the newest draft of the XUL spec, and also makes a curious comparison between Java and XUL.

The relationship between Java and XML is the following: Programs in Java are designed to run on many platforms. Data in XML is designed to be cross-platform data. So, Java is to Cross-Platform Programming as XML is to cross-platform data. XUL is XML for user interfaces, right? So that's probably what they were trying to say.
