I'm a developer for a small dev shop with some pretty awesome projects. I specialize in .NET, but can hold my own in JavaScript, SharePoint, and Fly Fishing. I blog about generally nerdy stuff over here and am writing a book about Trello over here.

comment How does one disable Office Web Apps for a given Site Collection or Web Application?
That's essentially what the powershell script Anders provided does. But, as noted there, even with that feature disabled, documents can open in the browser. This is especially a problem in anonymous sites or with non-ie browsers where SharePoint cannot detect Office.

This will deactivate the feature, but in some cases, Office Web Apps will still attempt to display the document even with the feature disabled. Specifically if SP is unable to use client integration- as in anonymous sites and non IE browsers.

Licensing is taken care of. @David By 'OWA site collection feature', I mean 'Office Web Apps' 'OpenInClient' refers to 'Open Documents in Client Apps By Default'. The issue is that, regardless of any combination of enabling/disabling those features, Word docs still appear in OWA on an anonymous site.

comment How can I use the SharePoint Javascript Object Model from a plain HTML page?
I actually got it 'almost working', but SP.js definitely depends on some markup and other scripts only found in application pages. REST and Ajax against the built-in listdata.svc, etc. is what I landed on, though I'm not sure I'll be able to get at everything I would have liked (like SPWeb.Navigation).
