Currently the only way I know of is to use Javascript for this.
Check http://proto.netscape.com/ for some ideas. If you search
for javascript there you'll actually find precisely
such an example. There are also javascript examples available
at http://www.gamelan.com/
To get most out of the above mentioned sites you should probably
use a recent version of Netscape2 (the official 2.0 has just been released).
