There are some minor updates to the xb cross browser
javascript functions and to ua.js on
devedge.netscape.com. Some of the changes seem to have
fixed various problems (sorry, I know I should be more
specific). Even though the xb stuff is now marked
deprecated in favour of standards based approaches
(e.g. no snifffing, W3C standard DOM, CSS etc), I
believe it is worth getting the updates until the
DocBook examples get reworked.

Looks as though when Netscape reorged their website as
a standards showcase recently xbDOM.js, xbLibrary.js,
xbStyle-css.js, xbStlyle-nn4.js,
xbStyle-not-supported.js and ua.js were all checked in
and had their $Revision$ tags updated, with
discontinuities c.f. previous version numbers. They
all have

$Revision: 1.2 $ $Date: 2003/02/07 16:04:22 $

(with minor time differences).

Except xbCollapsibleLists.js shows

xbCollapsibleLists.js 2001-02-26

but that appears to be the most recent version
according to the changelog which has later dates in it.

Irrespective of version numbers, diff will reveal the
extent of the changes wrt to the versions distributed
with DocBook slides.

    It appears that xbCollapsibleLists is now deprecated in
    favor of CTOCWidget. I don't know when I'll get around to
    doing that update, but I've put CTOCWidget in the browser
    directory anyway.
