Well, there _might_ be a way, although KSS integration in Grok is
terribly outdated.

Are you sure you really want KSS? It's not used widely anymore and
overall I think most people use popular JS frameworks like jQuery these
days if they are after some nice AJAX effects.

Usage of these external JS libs became much easier with fanstatic. From
my personal view usage of something like jQuery with fanstatic is
faster, easier, more transparent and much more powerful.

So, you're sure you really want KSS?

Best regards,
