SEUL has mostly been leaving the GUI standards issues to projects like
gnome and kde (since they're more actively developing the newer gui's),
though there have been several threads about xml on the seul-edu list
and a lot of the educational apps we're developing will need good data
interchange formats. Rather than designing gui standards, we're working
more on advocacy documents and the like.

I've cc'ed this to the Project Independence list (independence.seul.org)
in case they have anything to add (I believe they evaluated nedit as an
editor at one point, for inclusion in their distrib? I don't recall the
details on that one.)

Anyway, feel free to continue lurking, and let me know if you have any
questions. :)
