Description

18 years ago
The help system should be XUL-ified and the entitites (e.g. paragraphs and
headings) externalized, so that it will be easier to localize. This will also
make it easier to change 'Mozilla' and other trademarks and Netscape-specific
names (e.g. Sidebar --> My Sidebar) for Netscape.

As an added bonus, the help files will also look more "native", i.e., will look
like the rest of Mozilla, even when you change themes.

What does this mean? That the help content should be in XUL? Or do you mean the 
table of contents, which is currently in RDF?

The actual help pages should be in XUL, and all text externalized to entities 
(with perhaps one entity per paragraph).

Accepting. Doing this right now--for localization and so that we can resolve some problems we are having (Cf. 81991 and others) with RDF in the table of contents

removing nsbranch keyword.

It would be nuts to make the help pages themselves XUL, and the xul-ification of
the TOC, though a good idea, is going to have to wait a while longer.

Not XULifying the help, but the issues would be addressed by using XHTML. Cf.
bug 95770.
