Mark,

You can use the mobile equivalent of RevBrowser and create a stack that
opens the pages as if they were local.

If you want to look into a technology that was created specifically to serve
local HTML/CSS/JS content as a mobile app, go to http://phonegap.com

Be aware that your current html setup can work with livecode and a web view.

Cheers
andre
