If it's a simple home loan calculator (like Kiwibank's for example), you
can just do up something in a spreadsheet that achieves the exact same
For example (sorry if you're a spreadsheet whiz and know this), here's
how to do two different loan calculations in Excel:
What your repayments will be based on how the other variables:
=PMT(Rate, Nper, Pv)
The amount you can potentially borrow based on the other variables:
=PV(Rate, Nper, Pmt)
Rate is the interest rate per payment period. That's your interest rate
per annum cell *divided* by your periods per annum cell (which would be
on either 12, 26, or 52).
Nper is the total number of payment periods. That's your periods per
annum cell *multiplied* by your total years cell (which would usually be
on either 25, or 30).
Pv is your amount borrowed cell (it means Present Value IIRC).
Pmt is your weekly/fortnightly/monthly repayment cell (set to what you
Those functions will both give you negative values, if that annoys you,
do =0-[one of the two functions].

I figure the OP has some reason for wanting to use a browser to do this,
rather than a spreadsheet (seems strange) but anyway, no reason not to I
guess. More people are familiar with browsers than with spreadsheets anyway.
There are heaps of free calculator templates around for Calc and Excel,
so you don't really have to know much about spreadsheets to get started,
although a lot of people don't know how spreadsheets work, having never
needed to use them.
required, and again, there are heaps of free examples on the net. Or
save any online working page with a calculator on it to Firefox's
Scrapbook, and work it from there. Or save the page locally as normal.
the page source (pretty generous, really) so it should be a doddle to
most people will be bothered with if building a spreadsheet, even though
the interface looks simple. It is also fast. I'd say it is a good
example as it works offline with no messing around.
