Book of Mozilla should have authoritative version on mozilla.org servers. (currently users [readers?] are forced to google for it, and get incomplete, often buggy versions)
I could create a page on m.o if TPTB wouldn't mind, and also if I knew where to put it.
it's there [on mozilla.org], but it's lost :-p
Created attachment 147768 [details] Known verses of The Book of Mozilla I've collected the three known verses from "The Book of Mozilla" in one HTML Document (verses are commented within the source code): 10th December 1994: Netscape Navigator 1.0 was released This verse announces the birth of the beast (Netscape) and warns bad coders (up to Netscape 3, when you watched the HTML source code with the internal viewer, bad tags blinked). And the beast shall come forth surrounded by a roiling cloud of vengeance. The house of the unbelievers shall be razed and they shall be scorched to the earth. Their tags shall blink until the end of days. from The Book of Mozilla, 12:10 31st March 1998: the Netscape Navigator source code was released The source code is made available to the legion of thousands of coders of the open source community, that will fight against the followers of Mammon (Microsoft Internet Explorer). And the beast shall be made legion . Its numbers shall be increased a thousand thousand fold. The din of a million keyboards like unto a great storm shall cover the earth, and the followers of Mammon shall tremble . from The Book of Mozilla, 3:31 (Red Letter Edition) 15th July 2003: AOL closed its Netscape division and the Mozilla foundation was created The beast died (AOL closed its Netscape division) but immediately rose from its ashes (the creation of the Mozilla foundation and the Firebird browser, although the name was later changed to Firefox). And so at last the beast fell and the unbelievers rejoiced. But all was not lost, for from the ash rose a great bird. The bird gazed down upon the unbelievers and cast fire and thunder upon them. For the beast had been reborn with its strength renewed, and the followers of Mammon cowered in horror. from The Book of Mozilla, 7:15
Created attachment 147781 [details] Consistent formatting and valid XHTML 1.1 Love the commenting. =) This just puts consistent formatting on the whole thing and makes it valid XHTML 1.1 again.
Well, where should it go? dw, you said it is lost, so it was on the webtree at some time? (sidenote, someone better write an update for the glorious Fx/Tb launch ;))
Hixie, you have a large collection of Book of Mozilla quotes. Is it still on the web?
Should this still carry the Netscape license? If we are going for XHTML it should have a XHTML MIME type. I'm not sure if we want to do that...
fantasai, May I check this in into the website? If so, where would be an appropriate place? I am going to convert it back to html because that is what the rest of the site is, if noone objects.
Actually, I could leave it as XHTML and use .htaccess and/or php to serve it as application/xhtml+xml
I'd go for http://mozilla.org/book/ (i.e. mozilla-org/html/book/index.html) This gives us room to have individual pages as given in about:mozilla, if we want. (e.g. /book/7.15 for the latest one)

FIXED. I had to change it to HTML 4.01 so that index would work so you could just go to http://www.mozilla.org/book. If this gets any bigger, we may want to consider moving them to separate files for each verse. -- I:\moz\MOZILL~1\html\book>cvs ci cvs commit: Examining .
