One advantage of an "open-source" style marketing campaign is that supporters can specialize within their particular market, place of employment, etc, targeting how Mozilla will work best in their industry or community.

(For example, maybe they could get a mozilla ad in the company newsletter or something, or write a letter to the editor about this great experiment. But the ads should be pre-made, or at least icons and basic looks for ads could be, so that they are all "on message" for the overall theme of Mozilla's campaign.)

AOL/Netscape is definately going to have to help, or at least let everyone know what their plans are for supporting Mozilla when it comes out.

It seems that without AOL/Netscape, it's kinda like a grass-roots political campaign.

In other news, I thought this was interesting: <http://www.appleinsider.c…ernet-explorer-five.shtml>

It's a link to a site describing IE 5.0 for Mac. The the new rendering engine is supposed to support:

greater support for HTML 4.0 Cascading Style Sheets 1.0/2.0, DOM 1.0/Win32, XML JavaScript 5.0.

The latest tests had it running faster than Mozilla build 8, with a caveat that neither engine was optimized.
