Something else to consider (again) is that we are talking about an 
embedded device.  So the javascript implementation/engine may or may not 
be as robust as a desktop equivalent.  What browser and/or webserver are 
we talking about having on the device?

We *probably* aren't talking about Firefox and Apache (or dare I say IE 
and IIS)...which is *probably* what most people are used to developing 
with.  So just because we are talking about using HTML and browsers as a 
common platform, doesn't mean that it is going to be exactly the same.  
Not trying to burst anyone's bubble, but just giving a little reality check.
