Abstract: This talk will discuss the ties between XML and the Mozilla application, and why it an ideal choice for creating applications that need to hook into Web functionality and rely on web standards. XML touches nearly every part of the Mozilla application. This extends from the user interface, to the content display and right into the core of the Gecko layout engine. The advantages that XML brings to Mozilla are separation of content, functionality and style. It is cross-platform and easily localizable. For the developer, it uses technologies that are familiar to them enabling faster development time with no compilation for UI development. To the user, it promotes customizability, which manifests itself in each of the components including new content, e.g., sidebar panels in the browser, new themes and multiple locales / language packs for your application.
