Tool - Delicious XML Exporter - Use this utility to download an XML file of all your bookmarks from Delicious

We use OAuth, so you never have to give us your password. But you must have Yahoo ID for that.... How does this work? In a few seconds you will be prompted to download the file containing your bookmarks. With this XML file, you can import it into several other bookmark utilities including the open-source Semantic Scuttle, or into a Wordpress blog, or many others. We are currently developing a Wordpress theme and custom post type that you can use to run your own private bookmarking website. We are not affiliated with Delicious or Yahoo. We are a fan of Delicious, and will be sorry to see it go, so we want to make it easy for everyone to be able to download their bookmarks data and move it elsewhere.

XUL (XML User Interface Language) - MDC

XUL (XML User Interface Language) is Mozilla's XML-based language that lets you build feature-rich cross platform applications that can run connected or disconnected from the Internet. These applications are easily customized with alternative text, graphics and layout so they can be readily branded or localized for various markets. Web developers already familiar with Dynamic HTML (DHTML) will learn XUL quickly and can start building applications right away. Open XUL Periodic Table in Firefox or another Gecko-based browser to see some XUL demos.

UserScript Writing 101 – Manuel of Things to learn - Userscripts.org

The Order of Things to Learn Look to the "Resources" section for places to learn about these. 1. HTML. Hypertext Markup Language. Not the same "language" as JavaScript. This is a markup language, meaning it's a bunch of text that is meant to represent some type of structure, in this case, a web page. 2. XML. Extensible Markup Language. In case you didn't realize, HTML itself is a type of "XML". Learning XML is important because many popular websites (YouTube, Facebook, Last.fm) use XML to interact with data. Since you already know HTML by this point, understanding XML should be cake. 3. CSS. Cascading Style Sheets. This is the way HTML (should be) stylized. You'll want to learn this. 4. JavaScript. Learn all the basics: data types, functions, JavaScript's native functions like prompt, alert, etc. 5. The Greasemonkey Extras. Like I said, Greasmonkey == JavaScript, with a lot of extras. A specific page listing the API's can be found here.
