Getting the Mozilla JavaScript library running is one thing. You're spot on in saying that making it work inside the browser is the more difficult bit. Fortunately, the DOM is well structured so a lot of the work can be automated but that doesn't help you if the browser isn't designed for those sorts of operations.

NetSurf is designed (from what I remember) as a parse once system - you can't easily got and modify the tree once it's been created. I could be wrong on that though :-)

In any case, using JavaScript isn't /too/ hard and you could end up seeing it in the strangest of places on RISC OS.
