Why do you want to do it, and who do you want to be able to use the terminal? Anyone using the site?

Anyway... is this (,00.html) something like you're looking for?

Not like that.
Suppose I am accessing a web page from my mozilla or netscape browser. Suppose there is a button , if I click on that I need to open a linux terminal window. So that I can run any program in that window.

I have a web page source code with Javascript. Is it possible to open terminal using Javascript in the client machine.
