I am interested in XUL. Actually our oss project (FreeCard.org) changed 
to use XUL, it means we are learning it. It is interesting see people 
gaining more interest in the Mozilla framework. You refer to the 
WikiPedia menu bar, for Firefox?

>the edit form, and 'unsaved' messages, and so forth).
>The reason for this is that I've decided to learn XUL (a UI language

>not-too-complex program to start with I had is a special edit form for PmWiki 
>that has two tabs: edit and preview. The edit tab is similar in content and 
>features to the current edit system. When the preview tab is selected, it 
>sends the current form contents to the wiki, requesting a preview, which is 
>brought up in that tab, allowing reasonably quick on-the-fly previewing of 
>what you've done.
>Ideally, I'd have it set so that if you hit the edit link in a capable 
>browser, you get the fancy XUL form, otherwise you get the standard one. It's 
>mainly a project for my own learning, but it would be nice to be able to make 
>it a PmWiki addon if I get far enough with it.
