Keypad

(Originally posted to WAIIG mailing list.)

For anyone using Mozilla or any other platform that understands XUL, I have just written a very simple in-browser keypad programme for locator-only navigation.

I actually wrote it so that I could “surf” with one hand whilst the other is occupied with essential caffeine and calories, but feel it may be of interest to anyone working without a keyboard.

The code is here and the associated stylesheet (all 20 lines of it). Whilst this works fine over my intranet, I can’t get it to execute from my web server – something wrong with the mime types, I guess. Interested parties will probably need to download and use locally.

If this is of use to anyone, please feel to take it and use it; extension/modification is simple – a little knowledge of XML and JavaScript is sufficient, even for those who have never looked at XUL before.
