JavaScript implementation of Markov Chain Monte Carlo cryptogram decoder

I have been working on a JavaScript version of the Markov Chain Monte Carlo cryptogram decoder from the last post. The JavaScript version shows you the permutations that the program is trying, so that you can watch the Monte Carlo approach in action.

Using Markov Chain Monte Carlo to solve cryptograms

In his article "The Markov Chain Monte Carlo Revolution" Persi Diaconis describes a method for solving cryptograms using MCMC. I wrote a simple implementation in Python.
