I have tried but I guess my understanding of Javascript is not as deep  
as it needs to be yet.   When any of the buttons are pressed there is  
a javascript function that is in charge of appending text to the  
output window.  Like you, I rarely use the buttons because latexmk.pl  
works so well in its latest incarnation.  I've tried several  
variations of the document.location.hash = "foo" trick to move the  
focus to the right part of the document but no luck.    If anyone has  
javascript suggestions for how to scroll to the bottom of the window  
I'm happy to try them out.
