XqUSEme - XQuery extension for Firefox

Hello all,

I've released XqUSEme , an extension for Firefox which allows XQueries 
to be performed by the user, using either the default and pre-installed 
Saxonica XQuery processor, or, if one has installed it separately, 
Berkeley DB XML. I realize that there are a number of kinks to be worked 
out (see the Readme), but the extension does work and can allow XQuery 
use in Firefox--and now without any need to manually move or write to 
specific configuration files. If you use the default Saxonica, it works 
out of the box (using that implementation's syntax--see the Readme):


Per an earlier request, I'd like to add eXist support as well, but to 
make things easier on myself, I'm waiting until the XQJ implementation 
is added to its trunk; and I'm open to adding other native XML databases 
or XQuery engines as time permits.

I've also released a simple extension for XSL at 
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5023 . I think I may 
merge the two extensions in the future.

In any case, these extensions require a review before they can become 
public, so I would very much appreciate some kind of review so that 
others might be able to make use of them; you just need to register 
first to get access.

And while I'm hawking my albeit preliminary, free and open source 
(though donation-earnestly-requested) wares, I've got one for Unicode 
input and conversion which might be handy for some of y'all too: 
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5235 .

best wishes,
Brett Zamir
