In order to accomplish X window applications to run inside a web browser 
the recommended method (if not the only method at current) is to make a 
Java applet act as a fake X Server so that X Client will be able to use 
it like a normal X Server. Shouldn't be too hard, only take about 10 - 
20 programmers about 6months - 1year to write, you better off getting 
tarantella, citrix (or similar) or just switch to web based monitoring, 
maybe even think about just using VNC :)
