Hi OpenLayers dev!

I, from the french 3Liz team, released an add-on for Firefox, 
Thunderbird and XulRunner based on OpenLayers : MozMapLayers. With 
MozMaplayers, OpenLayers now works in XUL environment and provides new 
features as OpenLayers.Layer.mozStorage. Such a layer is read from a 
local SQLite database. The geometry must be stored as Well Known Text.

The 3liz team's objective is to provide a GIS toolkit for mozilla (XUL) 
environment. Because OpenLayers is a good JavaScript lib, we decided to 
adapt it. I made little changes like replace createElement by 
createElementNS, and create an Overlay to include OpenLayers lib in XUL 
windows. The current MozMapLayers version is 0.9 because we would like 
to add mozilla specific feature.

You can try MozMapLayers via a little demo named LiziLayers, to create 
and test OpenLayers scripts in HTML or XUL context.

I hope this will interest you.

Best regards,

René-Luc D'Hont
