Default Reading, writing and querying an XML db without a server

I'm making a web page - not to put online, but to use locally in a browser to do work - so I can keep up with work orders, who did them and how many hours it took. Yes, this is important to my job. Currently, I'm just using paper and having to add all the hours up manually and it takes a long time. I made an XML table of all the work orders along with XML tables for each employee, of which there are only 4.

I'm to the point to start coding the JavaScript that does the actual work to insert the information into the tables. I want the employees to be able to select a work order in an HTML form and then enter how many hours they worked on it. After that, they will click a button that triggers a routine that enters the work order number and hours along with the date into their respective table. At the end of the pay period, I will run a query to get each person's work log.

My question is this: is there a way to do this locally on the machine within the browser or do I have to send this out to a server? I know this kind of stuff would be best done with a database connected to a custom program. I have Visual Studio 2012 but I'm having problems getting an Access DB connected and I really don't have any SQL or MySQL stuff to work with. Plus, actually using it at work would require installation of software on a work computer and my employer (Uncle Sam) isn't down with that.
