Hi

I want to know what is the best method for naming variables,...

*Please suggest naming for these conditions:*

My Application name: *MyApp*
My current XUL window name: *MyMainXUL*

then what is the best name for these :

What is the best name for main window id :
My choice is  id="*MyApp.MyMainXUL*"
What is the best name for main window title (id for localization)=
My choice is  title="&*MyApp.MyMainXUL.Title*;"
What is the best name for pref in Js file:
pref("*MyApp.MyMainXUL.SomePrefName*", "*PrefValue*");

What is the best name for one element in main xul file (all ??? cases):
<menubar id="???">
  <menu id="???" label="&???;">

-----
<tabbox id="???" >                       //My choice is *
MyApp.MyMainXUL.Tabbox1*
    <tabs>
        <tab label="&???;"/>            //My choice is *MyApp.MyMainXUL.**
Tabbox1.Tab1*
        <tab label="&???;"/>            //My choice is *MyApp.MyMainXUL.**
Tabbox1.Tab2*
    </tabs>
    <tabpanels>
        <tabpanel>
            <textbox id="???" value="&???;"  />     //My choice for id is *
MyApp.MyMainXUL.**Tabbox1.Tab1.Textbox1*
                                                                     //My
choice for value is *MyApp.MyMainXUL.**Tabbox1.Tab1.Textbox1*
        </tabpanel>
        <tabpanel></tabpanel>
    </tabpanels>
</tabbox>


I think these example will show all possible cases, please add some more if
you think they couldn't support all conditions.

Thanks
-Joe
