comment Hebrew TeXLive on Ubuntu 12.04 missing fonts
Thanks I'm hung up in Java projects this week. Last I was in that stuff it was ConText all the way, and it was working. But I'll keep your suggestion in mind.

comment How do I place a simple javascript in the resulting PDF?
I'm in the process of learning ConTeXt today. The last few hours I was installing and configuring it. LuaTeX is embedded in my ConTeXt installation, and the ConTeXt installation is embedded in my TeXLive installation. Still there was some configuring to do, and I haven't done any LuaTeX yet- mostly I'm working on Hebrew support, which I have got working. Not sure about Javascript in ConTeXt in particular but: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/3080/… is a good start

comment How do I place a simple javascript in the resulting PDF?
Pure opinion: I think this is the future of TeX and of interactive documents generally: luatex.org which is part of wiki.contextgarden.net/Main_Page You'll have to learn Lua, but if you can use Javascript you shouldn't have any problems porting over. You'll also have to allow some time to get your installation up and running. They have some samples on their site; interactive PDFs-- nothing too exciting--kind of like Powerpoints, but the possibilities for development are rich with Lua.

revised Hebrew TeXLive on Ubuntu 12.04 missing fonts
changed the clause in a sentence in the 3rd paragraph to better reflect the sequencing of it first not-working, then working (after deleting \emph hebrew) then not working again
