  * MyXAML - BSD-Licensed Open Source XUL Motor For
Today's Windows.Net Now Live

   Marc Clifton (a C# hacker from Rhode Island) has

namespaces without using a DOM backbone, instead using
the property setters defined in the namespace classes

  Marc is not all talk but has already a prototype up
and running and ready for download.
