Saturday April 3rd, 2004

Gerald Bauer writes: "Meetup.com — a site that helps in organizing local interest groups — has opened up a XUL chapter. Now you can join and link up with fellow XUL coders and designers at local cafes (and other places) in 612 cities across 51 countries. Every 1st Tuesday of every month is now officially International XUL Meetup Day! Meetup with other local XML User Interface Language (XUL) coders and designers to discuss the future of the rich internet for everyone.

"PS: I (Gerald Bauer) will try to organize a first XUL coder and designer meeting in Vienna, Austria in May. See you there."

It's not and never has been about Mozilla/Gecko being the sole XUL renderer (at least not among the serious responders). If you want to make your own renderer (Luxor or what have you) and use it, fine! No one here will care a bit; hey, we might even start using it if it's not buggy and lets us put textboxes in scrollboxes (bug 107520). Just don't call it a XUL renderer *unless* it renders only Mozilla-approved elements/attributes in the Mozilla XUL namespace (extensions in separate namespaces are still okay, as Mozilla does with XHTML) and returns an error on all other elements/attributes wrongly placed in that namespace. In that case it's an XML UI Language renderer (or whatever you want to call it, be it XUIL, XIL, etc.), but it's not an XUL renderer.
