Greetings,I would like to be able to save clientSide textArea contents to a file? 1) A *.txt file would be nice. 2) Or can it be copied to clipboard?3) Can I dump textArea into an email?4) Some other clientSide method. Thanks...Vernon

There are security problems on both ends if a client-side language can save data into files.On the client-side, scripts could be used to save viruses into user's computers.On the server-side, scripts could be used to add server-scripting files to hack the system. For this reason, client.side scripts cannot save files neither on the server nor on the client's computer.

Most good ideas are accidental. :) And bad ones too. ;) I've had a lot of problems posting on this site, presumably due to IP.Board's post editor implementation. Sometimes I even have to go to "more reply options" or "preview post" or my post is totally borked. I too have had problems with cut 'n paste. Or how about posting a long reply and you hit Add Reply, and the post disappears? A few times I've rewritten my post, other times I just said "aw (&*(*Y*(^%%" and gave up.

I like how sometimes the cursor disappears in quick reply, and hitting enter has no effect. That's when I have to hit "more reply options."
