After some talk on Freenode #jsoftware, it was asked if you could use a better font? I would suggest GNU FreeMono. That's the one I use in my Emacs windows and looks great for APL: http://www.fontspace.com/gnu-freefont/freemono

This is pretty amazing stuff. Having the ability to save workspaces using HTML5 local storage would be a nice addition.

Also, using the arrow keys to select from the command history would be neat.

I can think of a million other features, but I'm sure you can too. :-)

I had to work more in order to turn the interpreter to an asynchronous process
(if you don't know about _javascript_: in two words, a _javascript_ program can't
"wait" for input from the user; you have to make your program event-based).

I finally made the interpreter completely leave between each interaction, but
with current state remaining in memory between each call.

At first glance, it seems to work: http://baruchel.hd.free.fr/apps/apl/i/
(the other version is still here: http://baruchel.hd.free.fr/apps/apl/ and
it has a different purpose).

You can know use it as an online interpreter. I will add some colors/themes
in the days to come, but the most difficult part is done.
