    This may be a silly question but I have some pages of HTML that I have saved on my desktop which do some calcs for me. Can I save it and run on the ipad?

    I have tried emailing it to myself and then opening the attachment but when I press the run button it doesn't work.

    Is this possible?

    Answered my own question. I opened it with Goodreader and it works!

    Is the code for the button action (Javascript I assume) inline in the HTML or in a separate .js file? If it's in a separate file I suspect that's the problem.

    next question, test a web site on the ipad?

    ok I got my simple html with some javascript to work.

    I now have a series of html pages which form a site someone has made for me. I have all the pages in a zip file and I'd like to test it on the ipad.

    I have emailed the zip file to myself, opened the email, unzipped it with Goodreader and I can now see all of the 1,000's of files which make the site. I can open individual html pages and they render ok, but I can't open the main html page - it just shows as blank.

    Is this possible?
