The code looks pretty flat; no folders.  It didn't even need any 
tweaks for file permissions when I uploaded to a web server.  The 
HTML mentions two .js files fpp.js and vg11.js that aren't present 
on his web or in the zip, but it runs without them.  It's not trying 
to write back to the DSK files, it just keeps an in-memory cache 
when it's running.  I imagined it was something related to security 
in a local browser.

I tried emailing the author but no response yet.

<> seems to be a different, simpler PDP emulator
written in JavaScript.
