. Ultimately, I want to market the 'program' on floppy or CD-ROM to folks in my profession, written so they can run it from within their desktop or NC browser without logging on to the internet. Unfortunately, cookie specs allow for only 20 cookies max per domain, which effectively prohibits using cookies to store/recall my simple text strings. I know it can be done with CGI, but as I said I want the 'program' to function WITHOUT connecting to the WWW. Is ActiveX capable of handling this chore (and compatible with Netscape Navigator 3+ as well as MSIE 4+)?? If not I'd like to write a browser plug-in which can create/delete text files and read/write to them. Anyone know how to begin?? I'd be willing to learn C++ or another language, as you advise.
