After some more investigation, it looks like Netscape is totally scriptable on unix. I discovered this after examining the file that comes with the distribution.

The interesting thing is the command "xfeDoCommand()". With this command, you can do "netscape -remote xfeDoCommand(print)" to print the current document. Of course, in looking through, it looks like their are hundreds of other interesting commands. For example:

netscape -remote 'fishcam()'
