New DevEdge Newsgroups
Wednesday June 2nd, 1999
Netscape has set up a number of new newsgroups for issues regarding designing websites to the standards, and for questions regarding Mozilla's new chrome based on XUL.
New mozilla newsgroups for people who want to design websites/webapps for mozilla:
1) netscape.public.dev.html- HTML 4.0 use & backward compatibility
Thanks to arielb for the news.

cool! what's the asterisk with the dead xml group?
I think a lot of us non-C++ non-wizards have been waiting for these (as well as for the poll to change ;-)... I'll spread the good word over at Builder Buzz & /.
Kovu -- that's not a dead group, it's a hierarchy (`*' is a regular expression meaning `anything'). So in the future there may end up being netscape.public.dev.xml.musicml, netscape.public.dev.xml.chessml, netscape.public.dev.xml.chemml, etc.
(Moz actually should have put a `.' before the `*', but never mind.)

Actually, what has been done is, there was an existing netscape.dev.xml group, and it will be moved to netscape.public.dev.xml . They have to get the messages moved over before they can kill the old one and create the new one I think.
