I just found the question interesting, and was having troubles sleeping,
so let me give you a quick answer.

>HTML <script type="application/gnuguile"></script>?

This sounds very hard, as it would require official acceptance of the
web consortium (?), or at least the people (mostly companies...) writing
web browsers. And they don't really have much to win by adding gnuguile
as an extension language trying to replace javascript I guess.

However, "unofficially", there are some ways to run guile, or at least
something scheme-like in your browser.

Here is what I was able to find:

# google summer of code project, guile running javascript basically

# mentioning guile can be run as an applet by "SurfIt!"

# scheme interpreter written on javascript -> the closest thing to what
# you're looking for I guess

# web server to run scheme, so you can have fun directly from your
# browser (it looks kind of easier to just install scheme directly though )

In short,

Probably not going to happen anytime soon.
Running scheme on top of javascript is possible though. That might be
good enough if you just hate javascript ;)
And there is/was (?) a browser that could run guile "applets" (sounds
very 90's).

This isn't really related to artanis directly, but I guess it was the
closest thing you could find :D.
I hope I was able to help you.
