I have a html file on my local drive. It contains Javascript and CSS. Is it possible to display it on Android.
Can we use WebViews to display this?

Any links to tutorials and articles that can help here will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Yes to all

The only thing missing at this time is the XMLHttpRequest object which means you do the old hide iframe techniques for ajax..

Thanks for the answer Fred...

If the <script> tag in the HTML, references a javascript on a remote machine will web view get a handle to it and execute it when the page loads? Is web view like a normal web browser?
