Would it not be simpler, to simply have the web pages loaded by the  
favourite browser? Using this approach would ensure that all platforms
have access to the content, and it would probably save you a lot of  

All you need to do is ensure that the auto-run script, if that is the

that an the entry-point HTML is available top level for anyone having
disabled auto-run.
