In that case, the patent is worthless. Dynamic exchange of executable 
code over the internet for use in rendering documents has been addressed 
many times before. For example, a standard for the exchange of such 
information was discussed at the spring 1992 meeting of the implementors 
working group of NISO sub-committee Z39.50 which took place at the 
Library of Congress in Washington. 

Sorry
