Storing PDF files offline in webapp - Perhaps as BLOBS in WEBSQL

I am creating an iPad webapp which uses appcache to store the the app for offline use.

I would like to offer the user the choice to select files to download onto their iPhone.
I dont know if this can be done and if how how (where to store the files).

Does anyone have any thoughts?


The main webapp will be stored with appcache, but the pdfs need to be selectable.

If the pdf's are build from within code. and not uploaded by you but just generated with code. You can use a javascript library like jsPDF

kind regards.

No they are going to be pdf files that given to us and not made by us.
Here is an article about local storage.

There is a part about saving any type of file into local storage.

Kind regards
