Cobra without Rhino 0.97

User qbproger has contributed a distribution of Cobra with all Rhino-dependent code removed:

http://www.quibb.org/cobra/cobra-0.97-nojs.zip

Rendering should be equivalent to Cobra 0.97, except in cases where Javascript is expected to change the HTML DOM.

Users wishing to distribute Cobra as part of a propietary application can use the "nojs" version without worrying about complying with the GPL license of Rhino.

Rhino is released under a dual MPL/GPL license. While MPL libraries can be used in propietary applications, Cobra relies on a third party LGPL library, which is incompatible with the MPL according to the FSF. For anyone interested, there is a bug report open with the Mozilla Foundation that mentions this license compatibility issue:
