Client side XML data island manipulation

I'm attempting to do a true Client-side XML data island manipulation.  Scenerio:  update XML data island through an HTML form on the client.  Let's pretend I have no web server access and this data island manipulation must happen on a client machine or 3.5" floppy diskette.  I have a working version that sends the user input to an ASP processing page that appends to the existing XML data island, but that requires the use of a web server to process this.  Anyone have a very simple, easy-to-understand model or example?

I would like the capability to both UPDATE and INSERT XML data into the island on the client HTML page.  The end statement is that someone with a disconnected laptop can add and update data which will be saved to itself (in the XML data island).  The XML data island will then be given to the an admin to run his own parsing routine to upload the data to the server's db.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

I figured it out if anyone wants a copy.  Basically I can INSERT / UPDATE / DELETE XML data island through my HTML form.  No server-side anything is needed.  Once I have these diconnected recordsets in the form of the XML page.  All my sa has to to is run a parsing routine (using MSXML and ADO) to update the database with the XML data.  Works quite nicely especially for those always on the go that may not have Internet connectivity but are still required to keep the system current-up-to-date.
