Hello All,
I work in the middle of the desert in Africa and am having to learn all this new stuff. The web is my only resource.

I want to develop an offline scientific metadata survey which would typically involve users browsing an offline page (which I send via email). Offline because Internet access is Very slow over here and a web-based server side solution would not work.

What would be the best client-side solution for building a text file on the users PC which could then be emailed to me at a later date? This is a non-commercial scientific venture.

I am using this approach because I plan to make the same survey also available online and therefore will just need to add some PHP to the HTML.

Hope someone can assist.
Many thanks
