That's what I was afraid of, from previous experience with the desktop web view. As a fullscreen web view is a necessity for the app I'm planning it's time for either hacks or learning Cocoa from scratch. :-(

One possible approach is to load everything within my own HTML page in an iFrame and find out if I can layer a PNG over the sub-page but the problem then is how to find out when it's been pressed - I can see how to talk to the page via JavaScript but not how to go in the other direction other than catching browserLoadRequest with delayRequests set to true but that's going to stop the sub-page loading in the first place.

Anyone have any bright ideas?
