XUL reference progress, and a request for help

One of the major projects I’m hoping to have more-or-less completed by the end of June is the addition of Neil Deakin’s XUL Element Reference content from XULPlanet into the MDC wiki. This project has been underway (primarily in discussion/planning phases) for the better part of a month, but we’re in the process of finalizing the final structure and formatting now.

To make the process go a lot more quickly, I could use some help in sorting the attribute, property, and method lists for each element. We will be including an alphabetical list of these on each element page, including all those that are inherited from the XUL and DOM elements. So each element needs to have three separate lists (attributes, properties, and methods) and the things inherited from the DOM element need to be marked as such (the linking for DOM items will be different than XUL).

If you could help with the creation and sorting of those lists, please find me in the #devmo channel on irc.mozilla.org. Any help would be appreciated here, because it can be a bit time consuming. Thanks!

Update: after a somewhat agonizing (and ongoing) debate over a few things, it turns out that this is largely unnecessary.  If you started working on these lists, you have my eternal gratitude, but it turns out we’re not going to need them.  Thanks!

  1. I’m not sure what is the problem here. Is it simply a matter of copying those lists from XULPlanet pages?

  3. Unfortunately, no. On XULPlanet the properties and methods are listed together and none of the lists include the things inherited from the XUL and DOM elements.
