It does have javascript support, which is selectable from the command 
line. The support is not complete, but it selectively implements a few 
critical functions. The manual is well written and discusses these 
issues pretty thoroughly.

Your other question is definitely a "no". There are no advantages here 
for persons wishing to create html documents, except that once you have 
produced a raw html document, you can convert it to a browsable form and 
get very helpful diagnostics on the fly. The browsable form is read-only 
if the original is html, so to fix it, you have to "unbrowse" it and 
repair the html. But it's up to the user to know how to write html.

It's not a perfect solution for everything, but it is a real step 
forward for many tasks.
