A few people (myself included) have built web UIs that control PD
patches that run on a server. The technique I've used involves an http
server that acts as a gateway, transforming http requests into OSC
messages which are then sent to PD patches. My blog has some info
about some of my experiments:

I've also been looking at wrapping libpd
(http://gitorious.org/pdlib/pages/Libpd) in a web server (maybe
writing a node.js binding?) and using that to generate audio based on
data from a web browser.
