This paper gives a brief introduction to the concept of XUL and then examines the principles, including adoption of Unicode (UTF-8) as the standard document encoding, of seeking localization solutions. After that, it dissects the components of a XUL document and identifies resources needed to be localized. It then recommends a set of XUL coding style guidelines to ensure the localizability of XUL documents.
While the localizability solutions proposed are for XUL, most of they can be applied to general Web document authoring for the sake of customization.
