Is it possible to embed javascript code into galaxy's tool .xml files that when the tool is loaded in the browser, it will be executed?

This is to allow for custom event styling using javascript to have responsive animations on the tool page as demonstration

i have tried simple 

 

<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
  alert((1 < 2) && (3 > 2));
//]]>
</script>

but it does not work

This is currently not possible. But you can link out your tool to a webserver, do your changes and link the data/paramters back in, if you want. For an example please the many of the get-data tools.

Moreover, a big rewrite of the tool rendering is on its way. Aysam is doing a lot of work to make the tool form more advanced and prettier.

Im sorry, I do not quite understand by what you mean to link out your tool to a web server,

"For an example please the many of the get-data tools", I do not quite understand what you are trying to say here

Have a look at: https://github.com/bgruening/galaxytools/tree/master/chemicaltoolbox/data_source/jmoleditor

You can draw a molecule and play around with JS and get the results back into Galaxy.
