I have a heavily locked down machines on a LAN (no internet access).

I need to create some form of application that will parse a remote web page for a certain word, and display a message if it is found.

Due to the restrictions on the machine (I can't run any applications, I can't run any vbs files, etc), I believe the best option is JavaScript running through Internet Explorer 6, but I am open to other ideas.

For a real example that can be tested, I would like to be notified if http://www.google.ca contains the word "Web" (it does).

My main issue seems to be with the same origin policy, but I don't know if there's a way around that, since I only want to read the remote site, and not interact with it.
