[Loadstone] keys, functions and success stories

Can't we just use the api from a sight like google maps or something, I
think there is a way that this can be done.. I am no programmer, but I was
talking to a friend and he said something like that. It would make the
program use the information from google maps or even map quest or something.
You would need a data plan though. I have media net unlimited, so I am good
for testing what ever you guys may be able to come up with.

Couldn't this currently be done using your phone's web browser?  It wouldn't
be as automated as you'd need to login etc and have a focal point but if you
navigate to the site and filled the form, could the file not be downloaded
directly to the phone.  I'd be curious if that'd work as I have no way to
test it, no data plan.

Perhaps someone more familiar with the s60 browser could address whether a
site using xhtml is accessible in the browser or whether we need to create a
wap enabled site. 
How would the phone handle the bit of JS validation on the forms.
