Adium themes use plain old XHTML, CSS and JS

Just a quick note of something I found out while reading Transcending CSS: all the themes (message styles, contact list styles, etc.) in Adium are crafted with our old friends XHTML, CSS and JS. I opened up a few AdiumXtras to see for myself and true enough, <div>s and CSS rules make up the style. Very smart decision by the Adium developers.

That’s what I love about developing on Mac, and yes markups (XHTML and CSS) are becoming more and more involved in desktop application. On the other hand, AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) has started to utilize the power of markups for its desktop apps as well.
