PAPPADOM Framework

I have been working on a class of browser-based applications which don't require a server.
Calling it PAPPADOM = Portable Application Providing Persistence Atop DOM (Document Object Model)

PAPPADOM is a package consisting of
* Prototype Javascript framework
* Miscellaneous UI components - menubars, menu etc
* Persistence - save stuff

Advantages
* Portable - web-browsers supporting Javascript is all you need
* Open Data - data is stored within the HTML file and hence is accessible.

Examples:
Neptuner UBoat: http://neptuner.googlecode.com/files/demo_uboat_neptuner_0_20.zip
Memonaut: http://memonaut.googlecode.com

Just a fancy name...
