what you are looking for is called webforms server, which can simulate existing *.fmx files in a java applett with the same functionality as the runform. To prevent errors from the browsers JVM, use Oracle jinitiator.
You need to run on a server: a webserver&listener, forms listener, web request broker and the webforms server(which will start togather with the forms listener).
Ofcourse there are some nice traps like button icons which need to be converted as gif´s to make them visible, but as summary it works ok.
