Replacing DHTML Menus with XUL

Monday April 5th, 2004

Nigel McFarlane writes in with news about his latest article on using XUL rather than DHTML to create Web page menus: "I've written another article highlighting the features of Mozilla. To the best of my knowledge this is the first 'dirty XUL trick' that might appeal to web developers. It's nice to see that the Mozilla styling and layout systems are robust enough to support this kind of fiddling. It would be wonderful to see a full Web toolkit of XBL objects spring up to replace the junk we do in Dynamic HTML."

So these XUL menus will only work in gecko, right? Isn't this like MSHTML? Aren't we going away from web standards? Or this a new feature that we as such we cannot implement due to MS not developing the IE engine for open standards?
