Something like this?
(Click on the solution button of problem 14316, 14317 or 14318.)
Unfortunately, there are several issues:
1. The script is useful for forward play only. Basically, in Retro analysis
it is only useful for proof games.
2. The script does not support fairy pieces, fairy boards, etc.
3. The effort to integrate a "playable solution" in a HTML page is
relatively high and includes manually editing the HTML code. Many solitions
in the Retro Corner are not suitable for the script; comments must be
stripped, errors must be corrected (e.g. S for N), etc.
4. The effort to integrate the script in already existing pages is even
5. The script (I found it on the Web) has already ~3000 lines. It is
difficult for any other person than the author to understand and modify it
(e.g. for support of a broader range of Retro problems like retractors).
Is anyone aware of a script that is more suitable for Retro problems?

I meant it would be nice to see game in the board (especially PG's).
