Hi Juan,

The core team of Amaya do not plan to integrate scripting support as it
is indicated in the FAQ ( http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/FAQ.html#II12. ).
See also the roadmap in the project page ( http://www.w3.org/Amaya/ ).
But Amaya being open source, everybody can help to improve it. One or
two month ago, I started an implementation of Javascript (using
spidermonkey, as Benjamin Hawkes-Lewis suggested). However, only a
little part of the DOM is implemented for the moment so it is not really
usable. Consequently, I would really be happy if some people help me. In
particular, I only tried with Linux, so I need testers with other OS. I
made a page where I explain how to make the javascript works :
. I haven't try to compile with the current CVS version but if you want,
I can update the files.
