maraschino looks really awesome, but is more than what I need for my music only box.
The simple approach of being able to do a small number of discrete commands still interests me. For example, the existing web interfaces that are available for EDEN meet my needs, but depending on which computer or tablet I'm on or what I am doing, I may want to change the interface.... so I'd like to be able to simply send a command that changes the web interface with a simple click on a discrete link/button/cmd from the device I on at the time, then be on my merry way. This thread looked promising to me in that regard.

Riball, thank you for this! It is exactly what I needed. I really appreciate your help. There is no way I would have figured this out on my own.
Robweber, I am very familiar with Maraschino. In fact, what I am trying to achieve is to add some additional functionality to a wrapper web site I created around Maraschino. You can see on my post above what I did. I want to add some additional functionality that is front and center to managing certain things with XBMC. I will post back here my results.
Thank you all.

Glad you got it working, although I'm still a little confused on how this is any different than the functionality (and purpose) behind what maraschino already does. Everyone has there own way of doing things I guess.
One piece of advice though, I wouldn't use this command:
the XBMC HTTP API has been deprecated since Dharma and will probably be removed by Frodo. The only reason its around right now is so developers have time to transition to the JSON API instead. You can do the same command with JSON, only it would look like this:
Your URL will work for the near future but is slated to be removed at some point.

Thank you Rob,
Sorry I missed your post earlier... I would like to take your advice but could I impose on you to clarify how I would call this within my html? I am not very familiar with scripting or any of the more advanced stuff...
I was hoping I could implement certain things like changing the Skin (looks like it's not doable), and a super quick way of sending update video library and update music library commands. They are there in Maraschino, but I need to pick a few things in the library to get to them. I wanted them front and center as part of my work flow.

You'll probably want to look over the JSON API and see what you can get accomplished from there (if you haven't already):
