Syntax highlighting for the XML User interface Language (XUL) a.k.a. eXtensible User interface Language.  Based on Nicolai Nespor's xul.vim v0.5.  Follows XUL's reference at http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XUL_Reference.

install details
Just place file into syntax folder.  To tell vim detect *.xul files automatically, just put the following line into filetype.vim (into the vim configuration dir) before the XML line:
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.xul  setf xul
If you want to disable the attributes syntax, put let nohl_xul_atts = 1 in your ./[g]vim.
<script/> is not the better way, it's better <script></script>; but, if you want <script/> form support, just place into your ./[g]vim file: let xul_noclose_script = 1.  If you do so, it's possible to damage the <script></script> performance, in the case you use any "/" char into the <script>, for example: <script type="application/x-javascript">.  It's up to you.
