This is your guide to building Internet applications and user interfaces with the Mozilla component framework, which is best known for the Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email client. Programming Firefox demonstrates how to use the XML User Interface Language (XUL) with open source tools in the framework's Cross-Platform Component (XPCOM) library to develop a variety of projects, such as commercial web applications and Firefox extensions. This book serves as both a programmer's reference and an in-depth tutorial, so not only do you get a comprehensive look at XUL's capabilities--from simple interface design to complex, multitier applications with real-time operations--but you also learn how to build a complete working application with XUL. If you're coming from a Java or .NET environment, you'll be amazed at how quickly large-scale applications can be constructed with XPCOM and XUL. Topics in Programming Firefox include: An overview of Firefox technology An introduction to the graphical elements that compose a XUL application Firefox development tools and the process used to design and build applications Managing an application with multiple content areas Introduction to Resource Description Files, and how the Firefox interface renders RDF Manipulating XHTML with JavaScript Displaying documents using the Scalable Vector Graphics standard and HTML Canvas The XML Binding Language and interface overlays to extend Firefox Implementing the next-generation forms interface through XForms Programming Firefox is ideal for the designer or developer charged with delivering innovative standards-based Internet applications, whether they're web server applications or Internet-enabled desktop applications. It's not just a how-to book, but a what-if exploration that encourages you to push the envelope of the Internet experience.

It seemed like such a small difference. So harmless. . . Tabitha Moon possesses an astonishing, though inhuman, feature that sets her far apart from everyone else. Yet, whilst truly remarkable to look upon, she feels that her appearance is also the wellspring of her loneliness; a burden that only ever seems to attract stares, cruel words, intimidation and even harm... So Tabitha hides and dreams of release from her torment, completely unaware that she has an ancient ancestry founded far from the unhappy place she grudgingly calls "home." Nor is she aware that the mysterious lineage is not only responsible for how she looks but also for an incredibly powerful gift she has unknowingly inherited from them. Then, one night, without warning, everything changes... Ignited by a particularly violent and cowardly attack upon her, Tabitha's latent, arcane power erupts into life from deep within - and with it a bizarre, yet wondrous, entity also awakens...
