HTML apps?

Am I right in thinking that the Kindle has two HTML engines, Webkit and a simpler renderer for static html files (saved as .txt)?

If so is there a way to run Javascript in the static html viewer? I tried saving a simple JS calculator web page to the Kindle. The page displayed but the JS didn't.

Perhaps there's some kind of trick or special html formatting required for the JS to be recognised? I know that static pages only support relatively simple html.

you would think it would be possible to get a hack running to get the browser to load files off of localhost... Or mabye some kind of kindlet wrapper to run javascripts + html in some kind of container.

If you have SSH access, is there maybe an iptable you could change to map a certain address to a local path?

(I don't know much about unix so I'm not sure if this is possible)
