Great!
I have updated the Wiki page with the right code to work with JSONP and jQuery and made some little changes to the JSONP section :D

So, now that all that is done, what do you think of parsing CAVCON for the value following it, and putting a small graphic like the Cavern Status led before the Developer Message? Perhaps using the COAS chart colors. RAWA seems to like 5 of things to track status (hmmm, 5... Now why does that seem familiar). ;)

The thought had already crossed my mind. Parsing for the status itself is easy enough, but I'd worry that having two graphics near each other might be confusing. Maybe it'd make more sense to put it at the end of the message, and only if CAVCON is mentioned? That might make things trickier for other pages using the widget.

On the other hand all of those LED colours (plus more) are available on the server now:

Cool - good catch on our stock. But maybe it should be a dollar sign ($) graphic instead (not that there aren't other currencies, but the dollar is what Cyan uses) so that confusion is avoided.

When you get down to that kind of size, the colour blending is making the vertical strike a bit indistinct :?

I've tried to make the strike a little bolder, so it looks more like '$' and less like 'S', but I don't think there's a whole lot I can do at that size, and I don't really want to go any bigger.

The originals are the left, the newer icons on the right:

It's not all that apparent, but an eensy bit better I think. I don't know when it happened that a single strike became popular, but the dollar symbol traditionally had a double strike. What if there were two of the thinner strikes on an 'S' if there's no font with a double?
