Well, I found out how to configure weirdx to use ssh while not using
a browser. Now I just have to figure you how to do it using one.
I have create a floppy like this:

\
 |- jsch.jar
 |- weirdx.jar
 |- weirdx.sh
 |- weirdx.bat
 \
  config
     |- props

weirdx.sh
=========
java -Dweirdx.sshrexec=yes -cp jsch.jar:weirdx.jar
com.jcraft.weirdx.WeirdX

weirdx.bat
==========
java -Dweirdx.sshrexec=yes -cp jsch.jar;weirdx.jar
com.jcraft.weirdx.WeirdX

(The only difference between the file for Linux and Windows is that
Linux uses : and Windows uses ; for a path separator.)

pros
====
weirdx.display.width=800
weirdx.display.height=600
weirdx.displaynum=2

weirdx.ddxwindow=com.jcraft.weirdx.DDXWindowImpSwing

#weirdx.windowmode=InBrowser
#weirdx.windowmode=Rootless
weirdx.windowmode=RootlessWM

# 16bpp, 8bpp colors
#weirdx.display.visual=StaticGray8
#weirdx.display.visual=PseudoColor8
weirdx.display.visual=TrueColor16

# xhost +
weirdx.display.acl=+localhost

# three button mouse emulation
weirdx.display.threebutton=yes

# the copy/paste functionality between WeirdX and the native window
system
weirdx.display.copypaste=no

weirdx.sshrexec=yes

I have not tried it on XP, but it works on Windows 98 and Linux. The
next step is making a web page that works with ssh.
