Re: howto download


Recommend saving the content into HTML5 LocalStorage or Web DB.  This will give you lots of space to keep a serialized copy of your file (e.g. full contents of an XML or JSON file can be easily saved in LocalStorage).  At present time, there is no JavaScript API for saving content, such as files, to the file system.


Listen in to Webcast #3 tomorrow for more info on LocalStorage and WebDB!
