HTML5 Database location

Hi,

I am new to HTML5 and I have few questions regarding the Local Database.

Where is the database stored in the local machine?
Is it stored in the cookies section?
If so how can we see the values in our local editor by browsing through the paticular folder?
If sample application is provided that will be of great help.

Thanks in Advance

Your question sounded interesting so I looked it up.  It turns out that the people involved could not come to an agreement so it is abandoned at the moment.  Note the big warnings on these two articles.

@Dave...

Managed to find a solution on my own. Half way through.

The file is located under the databases folder which can be found in the following path

%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\

I downloaded SQLite Manager and installed in the Firefox and then browsed the file which was found in the above location and I am able to see the tables

I hope you realize that Chrome is the only browser that will use that location for HTML5 local storage.  Safari and Opera will use their own locations.  And even though you can see it thru a Firefox addon, Firefox won't be using that location either.  IE8 calls it DOM Storage and here's their page: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197062%28VS.85%29.aspx
