(this is getting very interesting but slighlty OT - maybe we should start a 
new list where we could also discuss the requirements of a content editor?)

I agree with Steven that installing yet another browser is mostly seen as a 
PITA by administrators.

But IMHO a content editor could be seen and "marketed" as a separate 
application - basing it on the Mozilla code base (assuming it makes sense) 
would not necessarily mean saying "Mozilla can now be used as a content 
editor" but could be "we have a content editor, and the code is based on 
Mozilla, by the way".

I don't think people would resist installing a new client application if it 
brings measurable benefits regarding content editing. Just don't tell them 
it's a new *browser*.

I don't know enough about the Mozilla code to be positive about this, but 
maybe there are other code bases that would be better suited to creating an 
XML content editor - Amaya, Swing, OpenOffice, others?
