I finally got around to this last (and probably most difficult ;)) item
on your request list. I posted a patch on GC
(http://code.google.com/p/texworks/issues/detail?id=221#c6) that should
give you the possibility to display an html dialog for information
purposes or an html form to get user input data.
There are a few limitations (no file uploads, for example), and most
importantly it only works with Qt >= 4.4. But I think it's a big step
towards more complex scripts. Thanks for pointing me at QtWebKit, btw.
