Topic: Javascript onclick events to control Autoviewer navigation

I'm posting this as new topic to get more exposure (possibly some help)

Is there a way to control Autoviewer via Javascript ?
It could be very useful to start, forward or rewind with HTML/Javascript...  Can one use JavaScript to call and control this function in StageManager.as? Am I headed in the right direction in trying to control AV via Javascript?

I'm looking to get something like:

<a href="#" onclick="showPrev()">Click here to go to previous image.</a>
<a href="#" onclick="showNext()">Click here to go to next image.</a>
<a href="#" onclick="showImage(mImageCount-1)">Click here to skip to the last image in gallery.</a>
<a href="#" onclick="showImage(0)">Click here to go to first image.</a>
<a href="#" onclick="showImage(6);">Click here to skip to the 5th image in gallery.</a>

<a href="#" onclick="showImage(16);">Sunset in London</a>
<a href="#" onclick="showImage(17);">Sunrise in New York</a>

USING THESE FUNCTIONS FOUND IN StageManager.as:

function showImage(index:Number,instant:Boolean)....AND SO ON..

function showNext(){
setPlaying(false);
showImage(mCurrentImageIndex +1);
}

function showPrev(){
setPlaying(false);
showImage(mCurrentImageIndex -1);
}

Any thoughts on this? Can it be done?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
