Good question. Yes, it is possible to embed a Google Gadget in any web
page. The development documentation site for Google Gadgets is:

A sample Google Gadget looks like the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
  <ModulePrefs title="hello world example" />
  <Content type="html">
       Hello, world!

The Gadget then must be hosted in a variety of possible locations and
then embedded in your site with code similar to:
