Any way to simulate user input into a browser based app for testing ?

As a former, non-web programmer I am used to doing extensive unit-testing using data sets of simulated inputs to my apps.... Having just developed an HTML/ASP/ADO based web-based app I am wondering if there is any mechanism by which I can simulate user input to my web browser app in order to let the thing operate automatically??? Nothing I have seen so far jumps off the page at me....

    WinRunner etc. let you record macros off Browser-based UIs as well as traditional thick-client UIs. They also have scripting support that lets you do more complex tasks - like reading yoru test inputs from a file and so on.
