   12: border=0>Mozilla is not just a Web browser. Mozilla is also a framework for
   13: building cross-platform applications using standards such as CSS
   14: (Cascading Style Sheets), XML languages such as XUL (XML-based
   15: User-interface Language), XBL (eXtensible Binding Language), and RDF
   16: (Resource Description Framework), as well as Gecko, Mozilla's rendering
   17: engine, and other technologies.
   18: 
   19: <p>The Mozilla development framework also makes use of programming
   20: languages such as JavaScript, C++, C, Python, and IDL (Interface
   21: Definition Language), plus framework technologies such as XPConnect and
   22: XPCOM, Mozilla's component model.
   23: 
   24: <p>In addition to Netscape's Mozilla-based browsers (Netscape 6.x and
   25: 7.x), the Mozilla framework has been used to create other browsers such as
   26: Galeon and Chimera, and chat clients such as ChatZilla and JabberZilla.
   27: Developers have also used Mozilla to create development tools, browser
   28: enhancements, and games, as well as many other types of add-ons and
   29: applications.
   30: 
   31: <p>This book explains how applications are created with Mozilla and
   32: provides step-by-step information about how you can create your own
   33: programs using Mozilla's powerful cross-platform development framework.
   34: This book also includes examples of many different types of existing
   35: applications to demonstrate some of the possibilities of Mozilla
   36: development.
