Amazon Recommends hack

About a week and a half ago, I profiled Amazon Recommends, a new service from Amazon that allows members of their Associates Program to easily place product recommendations on their sites using JavaScript. I also lamented that they had hard coded the layout so that you pretty much have to go with their design on your page.

Interested JavaScript coder Willem Broekema found a way to change the layout of your Amazon recommendations. Basically, you put Amazon’s JavaScript code in a hidden div, parse it with JavaScript, and then spit it out into another div with the modified look and feel.
