Out of interest along these lines, for those that don't already know -
mozilla.org have released M3 (milestone 3) of mozilla. I'd consider this
pre-alpha now (whereas gecko wasn't even that), and it's got some really
neat features - like the whole UI for navigator and mail/news and editor is
built in XML - and you can edit it and change the layout completely. Nice.
However the disappointment is that it appears that they aren't using expat
yet (why???). I tried editing my .xul file to contain this:
Obvioulsy totally wrongo. But it parsed it and displayed a <h1> just fine.
No error messages. I'm submitting a bug report now.
