quote:The only way is to use a server-side proxy that relays the requests from your server to the real server. Cross domain access is only forbidden on the client, servers have free reign.
Forgive me, for I'm newer to programming, and have much to learn.

So, if for example, my code was this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<title>CBS Radio Network NewsFeed</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<script type="text/javascript">
var xmlDoc;
function loadXML()
// code for IE
if (window.ActiveXObject)
  xmlDoc=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
// code for Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, etc.
else if (document.implementation &&
  alert('Your browser cannot handle this script');

function getmessage()

<body onload="loadXML()">
    <div id="CBSFeed">
        <h1><span id="title"></span></h1>
        <p><span id="description"></span></p>
How would I go about doing this crazy magic you call server-side proxy? =)

Are you not entertAIn3d?

You'll have to scour Google for examples. Basically you have a web service running on your server that accepts as a parameter the desired URL, 'http://cbsradionewsfeed.com/rss.php?id=32&ud=146', for example. It then loads the content from this URL and passes it back to the original client. As the content is coming from the same domain as the client all is well. I believe Grease Monkey have a server-side proxy that can be used by others, try their site for ideas.

Code mentioned by Kalpakavalli.S works fine
 var fsoXML = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
	var XMlFile = fsoXML.OpenTextFile("C:\\File1.xml",1);
	var Data = XMlFile.ReadAll();

A bracket was left opened in OpenTextFile function..That was why Objecr Expected alert comes
