interface nsIDOMWindow;

/**
 * This is the interface to the embeddable prompt service; the service that
 * implements nsIPrompt.  Its interface is designed to be just nsIPrompt, each
 * method modified to take a parent window parameter.
 *
 * Accesskeys can be attached to buttons and checkboxes by inserting an &
 * before the accesskey character in the checkbox message or button title.  For
 * a real &, use && instead.  (A "button title" generally refers to the text
 * label of a button.)
 *
 * One note: in all cases, the parent window parameter can be null.  However,
 * these windows are all intended to have parents.  So when no parent is
 * specified, the implementation should try hard to find a suitable foster
 * parent.
 *
 * Implementations are free to choose how they present the various button
 * types.  For example, while prompts that give the user a choice between OK
 * and Cancel are required to return a boolean value indicating whether or not
 * the user accepted the prompt (pressed OK) or rejected the prompt (pressed
 * Cancel), the implementation of this interface could very well speak the
 * prompt to the user instead of rendering any visual user-interface.  The
 * standard button types are merely idioms used to convey the nature of the
 * choice the user is to make.
 *
 * Because implementations of this interface may loosely interpret the various
 * button types, it is advised that text messages passed to these prompts do
 * not refer to the button types by name.  For example, it is inadvisable to
 * tell the user to "Press OK to proceed."  Instead, such a prompt might be
 * rewritten to ask the user: "Would you like to proceed?"
