The About Mozilla (Help menu) should be XUL-ified and the entitites
externalized, so that it will be easier to localize. This will also make it
easier to change the name 'Mozilla' to 'Communicator' for Netscape.

As an added bonus, the dialog will also look more "native", i.e., will look like
the rest of Mozilla, even when you change themes.
Adding keyword l12y.  Changing QA contact to ylong@netscape.com.

huftis, it is not clear in your descriptopn. Do you talk about the pull down 
menu item "About Mozilla" or about page about.html?

worksforme - the dialog is "XUL-ified" if you have that pref turned on. Enable 
it by going to prefs and clicking "Show About as modal dialog" checkbox in the 
debug panel.

No, it's not. It's still just a HTML file. Reopening.

Karl, the dialog is made in XUL if you have that pref from the debug panel
checked. Do resolve back.

No, only the dialog "window" is in XUL. The contents is still a HTML file (an 
invalid HTML file, BTW), which is difficult to localize.
Karl, In what sense is it hard to localize?  It's just some text.  

BTW, the HTML won't be invalid after the fix for bug 88686 is in.
I don't think localzing about.html is a big deal. But if there is a easy way to 
make it a xul, we should do it. 

Reassign to the owner of the file, mcafee.

mcafee, if you don't own it, please reassign it to the right person. Thanks.

Since its not a bug deal to localize about.html, we will not XULIfy this for now
at least. we will consider in time for the next netscape release.

Why was this bug being ignored until now?
I just see it has been assigned to nobody and I wonder why since it has been
more than a year since this was reported and still no fix...
