JS save to client HD

I can create a text string in JS; what I would like to be able to do is not just display this on the screen, for the user, but for the script to be able to save this as a text file on his/her HD; like asking the user (via a JS ask dialog) if they want to save and doing so if they say yes. The problem is in how to actually do the save. I want to save to the CLIENT's HD, NOT the server's. Is this possible? And if so, how?

I will save you the trouble right now.  there is NO WAY to save anything on a HD via JS.  YOu would need to create a Java program or Plugin or ActiveX control...
 
There is no way.  Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise...
