And I just found this: http://blogus.xilinus.com/pages/javawin

So here's what we need to do.

Use that code to generate a window and pull in data from *a
webpage*... The difficulty will be targeting certain data on a page
w/o doing any complicated transforms. Let's presume wellformed
microformats. Now let's say that I want to pull out a specific hcard
or hcal from a page of many hcards or hcals... how can I pull that
specific piece of data from the webpage?

Oh man, this could be huge.
