Google Sites + Twitter "Share a Link" button


#1

How do I put a ‘Share a Link’ twitter button on my Google Site?
According to this Twitter page https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons#tweet I should be able to simply include the code provided on the page, in the HTML section of the page. Unfortunately that doesn’t work, as Google Sites strips the javascript, leaving just a plain HTML text link for the reader to recommend on Twitter.
There are some discussions about using Google Gadgets, for Twitter and Facebook ‘share a link’ buttons (on Google Sites developer discussion pages). However, I don’t understand how that would work yet. Simply copying the code and pasting into a gadget code function doesn’t work. The API for gadgets is extensive and will take awhile to get through: http://code.google.com/apis/sites/gadgets/site_gadgets.html
Is there some easy code I can use to insert the Twitter button?
Right now I’m using a button another user created, but it doesn’t have the look or content exactly like I’d like it. (The way the official Twitter code makes it look.) Definitely good to have a working button, for now though! Here’s the code I’m using: http://www.steegle.com/websites/google-sites-howtos

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps with this!!!
