Is it possible to use Javascript or VB script from within the HTML widget?

I have some information on a webpage out side of team concert which I want to display inside on a HTML dashboard widget in team concert.

I thought I could it with Java script by reading in the contents of another webpage and writing the necessary information to the widget. When I try do this the widget deletes my javascript tags. I'm assuming it's not possible but I thought I would ask.

If it's not possible, could someone recommend a way of doing as I described. It doesn't need to be sophisticated. Quick and dirty will do.

You can add a Dashboard Widget that displays the contents of another web page.
  • In your dashboard, click the Add Widget button on the upper right.
  • In the General category (link is on the left), locate the External Content widget.
  • Add it to your dashboard
  • Open the Settings for the widget and add the URL of the website you want to see.
