 yes you can.  see recent post i made just a few minutes ago giving
some insights into each of the available options.

look up pyv8; pykhtml; spidermonkey; webkit with the python bindings
to its glib bindings - pywebkitgtk - use my patched version and see
http://pyjd.sf.net to get precompiled versions; pyxpcomext and pydom
on developer.mozilla.org; webkit's DumpRenderTree with the --html
option, to name but a few.

there are _tons_ of options.  they're just an absolute bastard to
track down, because javascript is such a popular keyword to search
for, the results are almost useless.
