XUL's <window> element have 'screenX' and 'screenY' attributes for
specifying location on screen. XUL's other 'root element' <dialog> may
or may not support them although they seem to be available for use in
My opinion of XUL is pretty low at this point. As I mentioned before,
there is no DTD. XUL is poorly designed and poorly documented. I have
been implementing a XUL builder for SWT (as in Eclipse), but just one
in Mozilla is enough to make anyone cringe. It is a result of mixing
blindly-follow-the-standards, hack-and-slash, and "What forest?"
FYI, XUL reference and tutorials at www.xulplanet.org seems to be most
accurate. I suspect its author had to browse through the source code to
get the right info.
