Hi Niklas,

Thanks for taking a look.  I'll add more details to the extension page 
and include a README in gerrit.

Here's what I have so far.

The viewer plugin only works when there is Formal SignWriting on a 
page.  Otherwise, nothing happens.

I can think of 2 reasons for the extension to fail.
1) the browser is using a cached version of Javascript from the server
2) the browser crashed on the Javascript

You can fix #1 with a hard page refresh.

You can investigate #2 through the browser development tools to see if 
there was an error.

A 3rd problem could exist because the plugin assumes that ResourceModule 
will include the Javascript code at the bottom of the page.
