Salut Vincent Arnoux,

   The point of MyXAML is that the XML format is much more compact (e.g. 
~90% less code) and thus you can create it like HTML "by hand" and you 
don't necessarily need a designer.  Since the format is also more 
compact you can create MyXAML pages, for example, on the server-side 
using scripts and send it to a MyXAML browser.   To see the difference 
between a compact XML UI language format and the Glade XML UI language 
format, see the the talks slide "XML for UIs - Glade Example" online @ 
from my talk titled "The Future of the Web: Rich Clients, Rich Browsers, 
Rich Portals".

   MyXAML works on Mono. See the blog story titled "Mono's Beta 1 and 
MyXAML -- it works!!!" for details online @
