You could get it into a JavaScript variable using AJAX and then do anything you want with it.

Bob,

Following your note on SMILES (very nice addition by the way), I've been
playing around with the Indiana University site. Since I have sever side
programming control, I had no problem reading the IU http into a hidden
field with subsequent load into the unsigned Jmol applet. I have to do
this (the load) with JavaScript, however, and I was wondering about a
direct load to Jmol. The IU return string (molfile) uses line-feeds.
Below is their return for propane with bars replacing line-feeds. Is
there any way to doctor this string so that Jmol will read it on a new
load? I could write the unaltered file it to a temp file on the server
and then load that as a molfile, but I'm curious about the possibility
of reading the http stream into Jmol from my server directly on a fresh
load.

The UI file for propane with aforementioned line-feed swap:
