[Marketing-Public]XAML - Microsoft's answer to XUL

More info on XAML and the "Avalon" subsystem here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/longhorn/default.aspx?pull=/msdnmag/issues/04/01/Avalon/default.aspx

Longhorn hype has been engaged here (stictly, not hype but developer info...
but I like being mean!)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/longhorn/

Perhaps promotion of XUL could ride the coat-tails of Avalon, by pointing
out that the same technology is already available, cross-platform, without
the risk of MS lock-in?  Or something.
