Alright... I'd like to take my super smash bros. countdown widget and embed it on a website. How do I do this? I'm wondering if there is some way to copy, paste, and rearrange, the different files so it would work...

Or is it just impossible...?

I'm not an expert, but as far as I can see, it's impossible.

Dashboard widgets, although coded using standard web technologies like xhtml/css/javascript, they also rely a lot on Apple's widget library and several technologies like that.

Everytime you reference "widget.whatever" then that's referencing Apple's proprietary widget library; and on top of that, some things are also Safari-only.

On the positive side, though, it probably won't be *too* much of a stretch to reprogram it to a website (by removing widget-only stuff like flipping to the back and preferences; replacing them with cookies etc.).

But no, a normal widget package would not just work off the bat on a webpage.

You will have to do a re-write (but shouldn't take too long) - look into sites like clearspring to help deploy it.
