I'm looking at the issue of re-doing the work in javascript and HTML,
basically the AJAX model. AJAX is just javascript behind HTML that
can make an asynchronous call using XMLHttpRequest. You can set some
information in the XMLHttpRequest object, invoke the send method and
wait for a result. That way you don't change pages. This will be useful
because the Axiom browser can send requests off to Axiom and have it
execute. Using Bill and Jose's work we can get Axiom running completely
in a web page. This gives us the ability to generate output immediately,
effectively making the browser a complete front-end that is system

The Axiom graphics can generate postscript images immediately so it
would be possible to embed the graphics results directly into the
web page. Unfortunately they would be static.
