Newt's Cape could provide you with the WMLscript source.
but you'd have to write your own WMLscript interpreter. (at one time, I
thought about a translator that could convert JavaScript (or WMLscript)
source to NewtonScript, then compile that; but the syntactic differences
for non-simple functions/expressions were too messy).
