Hi,

  Sorry if this post is slightly off topic. As it
looks the XUL Alliance with the tag-line "creating a
rich internet for everyone" is an emerging standards
body that takes the W3C head-on especially in upcoming
XML UI standards such XForms 1.0 and XHTML 2.0.

  Don't you love competition?

  Here's the "official" site kick-off blurb:

Open XUL Alliance Site Goes Live
--------------------------------

The goal is to promote all things XUL and to provide
free test suites to help ensure interoperability
between different XUL motors/browsers/runtimes and
free, open-source show-case examples (aka blue prints)
to demo the power of XML for creating UIs. 

For now the Open XUL Alliance Site sports: 

* XUL News Wire  Breaking News About XUL; also known
as the xul-announce Mailing List 

* The Richmond Post  Chronicle of the XUL Revolution;
XUL News Weblog 

* xul-talk Mailing List  Beyond Mozilla; Talk about
XUL issues touching more than one XUL
motor/browser/runtime 

* XUL Lecture Series  Rich Clients, Rich Browser,
Rich Portals and much more 

* XUL Link-opida  Articles, FAQs, Cheat Sheets and
much more 

  Full story @ http://xul.sourceforge.net

PS: There's also a discussion in MozillaZine about why
the W3C is the wrong forum for XUL and stiffles
innovation ("the shackels of W3C standards") online @
http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback.html?article=3213 


PSS: Don't get me wrong. The W3C's achievements are
outstanding, but it's time to move on.
