Subject Re: [jelly] JellySWT library available
Date Fri, 27 Dec 2002 12:12:43 GMT
Hi James!

Is there any plan of making JellySwing and JellySWT to support XUL style 
markup? So XUL would be used to describe the UI and switching between 
XUL implementations would be easier...?

Or are there some serious issues with this idea?

Rgds,
Neeme
