HTML5: saving data in local database when browser closes

I would like to see a good tutorial or simple/clear example of storing a value using local storage in HTML5, where the data is still there after the browser is closed and reopened. I believe there are two ways of storing data, just as text, or in a database. I prefer the database for now. I suppose it will be more complex to start, but in the end it's more useful for what I want.

Look here for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_layout_engines_%28HTML_5%29#Related_specifications

As best I can find, 'database' storage is not universally implemented.  In other words, they can't agree on what to do.

Thank you. I don't need to write an application that will work across all browsers. At first I want to get familiar with it, and create a tool for my own use, on my mobile phone and in a browser. So I know what those browsers can do, and they support this.
