Hey Chris!

Not sure if this might be of interest, but there's JWChat:


It's an open-source, web-based Jabber client that uses JavaScript and 
HTML on the client side.  No need for users to install software per se. 
  Now they still need a JID as far as I know, but it's one possibility. 
  Also, since the source is available, might show how to use JavaScript 
to do basic Jabber/XMPP work.

There are plenty of other Jabber/XMPP projects that do various things 
like show presence on a webpage, etc.  Of course there's always Google, 
but I tend to check www.jabberstudio.org first when looking for 
solutions.  That's where many projects are hosted.
