Hey I'm just wondering--

For many users who hear about this "netscape 5.0 alpha" this will be their first introduction to mozilla... It's a great opportunity to introduce the concept of OSS and explain to them what's going on...and that they can help contribute.

Has any thought been given into that opening default HTML page and what its' going to say.. how to welcome new users to the concept of open source, XUL, cross-platform, open standards, etc. and maybe give them easy-to-digest info to (A) report bugs and (B) contribute in other ways (learn XUL, understand why Netscape 5.0 will rock, get involved with whatever they can do...) etc

The Mozilla PR campaign starts soon. W
