A slow news day today at mozillaZine, so I thought I'd throw in a bit of news and a request.
First, the news: MozillaZine, in the next few days, will be moving to a new home at http://www.mozillazine.org! It should be ready to go any day now, so keep your eyes peeled. We'll post the news here and give y'all a day or two to update your bookmarks before we start redirecting. Thanks to the thousands of people who have stopped by and those who have contributed in this first two weeks of MozillaZine's operation!
Now, since we're running out of room, click below to read our request! Don't worry, it's painless!

Well, since you're taking requests, I'll give you a few.
One of the things I've been curious about is the XML and CSS support. I've heard that XML support is supposed to be wonderful in 5.0, far surpassing IE5. I haven't heard as much about CSS. I was hoping you might get the scoop on how far the XML and CSS support, especially in regards to IE.
Also, I've been hearing a lot about the new NGLayout engine. But I also read an article saying that some of the web development community is a bit upset because the NGLayout isn't going to be ready for 5.0. So I'm wondering what the deal is with that. Will the NGLayout engine be in 5.0? If not, will it be included in a new version, such as 5.01 or 5.02?
And what about DHTML? Is that still even an issue? I used to hear a lot about that, but haven't heard as much anymore.
I have more questions, but I'll leave it at that for now.
P.S. I love MozillaZine! I've been looking for news on Mozilla, and this has been a Godsend. It was the exact type of site I was looking for.

Alrighty, Joel. I'll be looking into XML and CSS over the next few weeks. Also, expect mozillaZine to expand its role in the community. We hope to soon offer tutorials and overviews of new technology that is appearing in Mozilla.
