Yet another commercial inspiration source:

Browser Plug-in
The XML Spy 4.0 Document Editor is currently available as a stand-alone application,
integrated into the XML Spy 4.0 IDE as an additional view, or as a Browser Plug-In
for Internet Explorer. The browser plug-in is the only browser-based solution
currently offered in the industry, and it is based upon open standards, such as XML
Schema and XSLT.

Mozilla is cool etc... but if we want to build something that can stand up against
what is already out there, and considering the still cumbersome browser-share that
Netscape AND Mozilla have, going for a Mozilla-centric approach seems kind of
dangerous to me.
