1) Is it possible that we can use ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") on the Apple Mac for the purpose of opening, reading from and writing to a html file .
2) If not then how can we open, read and write to a file on both Windows and Apple Mac systems.
3) Is it possible that on clicking a button on some page, I can open or laod a new html document on the same page and then display some computed results on it.
I dont want to use window.open since it will open the page in another window.
It would be nice if I could get some code snippet or link for all of the above.
