Hello Maksim,

isn't "just" converting the stylesheets for HTML to ones for XUL to easy?
The really interesting part with XUL is to use it as rich client, i.e. to
avoid rendering the complete page on each request, but only the parts that
need to be rendered. Independent on the new AJAX hype, that Sylvain has
implemented for HTML, XUL provides a similar mechanism itself - including a
client side templating (chapter 9 of the tutorial starting at This would be an
implementation that really uses the options XUL provides.

Just my IMO ...
I can also offer help on this.
