You can simply the XML DOM (with ie5).

Here is a good introduction:

If you problem is to create a (xml) file on disk, you would have security constraints.

to create xml file on the disk , first make a vbscript function which will use FileSystemObject object of vbscript
and then call that function in javascript
filesystemobject is the object of vbscript which will create the file on your disk , and in javascript u just traverse through the structure and write the nodes onto the file

Any way it gives a warning that shows running ActiveXobjects unsafe.  and another prob is VB Script not able to run in NS.  Is there is any other solution?...

I created a ActiveX DLL but with which the same problem persist..

A VC guy told that inherit ISafe.. to open that in scripting... but if we implement it we cannot save that object in local...(File system object deney...)  MS DOM itself come with a API called "Save" but it won't work in scripts...(From VB it works fine)
