The jsmol.zip that I have just downloaded seems to be broken:

$ unzip jsmol.zip 
Archive:  jsmol.zip
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of jsmol.zip or
        jsmol.zip.zip, and cannot find jsmol.zip.ZIP, period.

The file's timestamp on the webserver is evening of Mar 25th ( ~6:30 pm Central time if I converted the timezone correctly).

If you are doing anything with JSmol, I suggest uploading http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/jsmol.zip once more. It's got some changes in the way the .js files are organized and fixes some problems I introduced yesterday.

Most importantly, if you are not loading binary files (PNGJ, ZIP, GZ, Spartan, for instance), and you use jQuery already on your page, this allows you to bypass JSmoljQuery.js and use what you are using already.  That file is JSmol.min.nojq.js, and it is only 130K in size.

This build also includes JSmol.lite.js (no jQuery) and JSmol.lite.jq.js (with jQuery) that are used in http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/jsmol/liteNCI.htm

and it adds the jquery subdirectory, which includes the latest jQuery 1.9 library, which JSmol seems to be compatible with (but still needs the extensions we add for binary file transfer, MSIE cross-domain AJAX, and mouse binding).
