Hi there,

  May I suggest you look at the work started on WCS (Web Client
  Services), something Jer started a while back. I use it for presence
  indication on my web site, and could also use it for messages between
  web site and jabber client. Jer has mentioned revisiting it for 1.5,
  learning from lessons learned, but even the implementation now works
  well for me. Take a look in the old-projects cvs directory on
  jabberstudio.org, in particular wcs and http (the http service module
  is a dependancy for wcs, it provides basic http handling)
