    function doSaveAs(){
    	if (document.execCommand){
    	else {
    		alert("Save-feature available only in Internet Exlorer 5.x.")
    <input type="button" value="Save This WebPage" onClick="doSaveAs()"
    <font face="Tahoma"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.javascriptfreecode.com/"><span style="font-size: 8pt; text-decoration: none">JavaScript Free Code</span></a></font>
    However, this code is only work in IE, It's not work in FireFox.
    I would appreciate if someone can give me an advice.

    You really need to use a server side language and save to a database. OR if the text area is small enough you can save the info in a cookie (can save up to about 4000 characters)

    Also, why do you need a "Save As" ?

    What the users do with this information ?
    Will they need to reload this back into the text area ?
    Will they need to print this info ?

    Firstly, thank you for your reply.

    I'm create an html generator. You may take a look of this website www.malaysia-tractors.com for more detail.

    What the users do with this information ?
    As you can see in above website, you will notice that actually it's a website html generater.

    Why i need the "save as button?
    It's because i want to save the step of copying and pasting the content into notepad and save it as html format.

    Will they need to print this info ?

    Hope to hear from you soon.
