Hi everyone.

We have come up with a shortlist of  Ajax toolkits we will consider as 
the technology to develop FLUID components on.

1. Dojo
2. Mochikit
3. YUI
4. JQuery
5. Prototype with Scriptaculous

Going forward, we will write a simple component to evaluate each 
component. The criteria used in evaluation include:

- debugging support
- cross browser support (IE 6 and 7, FF1.5 and FF2+, Safari, Opera)
- accessibility support (i.e. ARIA)
- portal (JSR-168) compatibility (i.e. plays nice in a portal)
- skinnable
- community support and momentum
- security
- event abstraction
- extensible

We'd love to have input from the community regarding the 5 toolkits we 
have selected for consideration.

Also, if there are other criteria we should consider, please let us know.


- Jonathan.
