Yes and No. I tried that extensively several weeks ago. Of course I can "do"
the js I need in the webpage that 'surrounds the standalone-canvas as we have
full control on that page. This is close to what we can do in a browser widget.

The problem is the "one-way"-only:
I can't see any way to go back, from the page to the standalone.

= The browser widget has jsHandlers available.
= The standalone has to get the data from the page by guesses, in a loop.

If you can show or give us a solution for that, then we can have in some
scenarios even more by using the latest versions of the main browsers than we
get by using an embedded browser widget.

In sum:
Can the HTML5 standalone become a property "javascriptHandlers" that works as
in the browser widget?
