* sets up some callback code

* points SketchUp at the HTML
SketchUp then puts up a window whose layout is specified
by the HTML (etc) code. User actions may be handled by
Although there are some awkward aspects to this approach,
I like the ability to generate dynamic content, use CSS
and jQuery, etc.
It looks like WebKit could provide similar capabilities,
using MacRuby as the "back end". I'm curious whether
anyone has been playing with this approach, possibly using
HotCocoa magic to tidy things up.
