   Re: [xml-dev] A Rich Internet For Everyone - Let's Create A Free XULSpec

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


IMHO we don't need another spec. What we do need (and I agree with my 
interpretation of Robin Berjon's post here) is more implementations of 
existing standards that will free us from vendor lockin. Where is the 
browser that will render a mixed, XForms based XHTML++SVG+MathML 
document? Where is my XForms2XUL or XForms2XHTML converter?

All I want to point out is that there is no need for more standards when 
we are so far behind on implementing the basics.

Kindest regards,


PS: What's not free regarding Mozilla's XUL+XBL implementation? I would 
avoid putting Moz in the mini-vendor empire list.
