Jimmy,

Did you ever get this fixed? I tried application/zip as well as
application/x-zip-compressed, but in every case I get a "No such file to
load" error.

Here's the source:

<html>
<head>
<script src="http://visitmix.com/dlr/dlr.js"
type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>
<body>

  <div id="message"></div>

  <script type="application/x-zip-compressed" src="myarchive.zip"></script>

  <script type="text/ruby">
  # somelib.rb => document.message.innerHTML = "Hello World!"
  require 'myarchive.zip/somelib'
  </script>

  <script type="text/ruby">
  # file.txt just has a text string.
  content = File.open("myarchive.zip/file.txt"){ |f| f.read }
  window.alert(content)
  </script>

</body>
</html>
