Couple of questions about the browser widget

For the second question, if your htmltext contains a javascript function
that returns document.body.scrollHeight you should be able to get the
height that way.    I'm not any good at javascript, but how it would
probably work would be to have something like this..

window.onload = function(e){

Then have an lcHeight handler defined in your stack to receive the message.

command lcHeight pHeight
   -- do something with pHeight
end lcheight

Then of course you have to declare the handler..

set the javascripthandlers to "lcHeight"

I haven't actually done this, but think the idea is close enough to get you
