It is hard. I know what you are trying to do and I've tried it before. The best way I can think of is using displayarea.document.location = "text/file.txt"; where displayarea is the id of a hidden iframe. Then reading displayarea.innerHTML or something similar. I forgot the exact way of doing it. Then you do stringoftextfile.split("\n") or stringoftextfile.split("\r\n") i believe. then you can set the returned value of the split in a variable, and then access line 3 from thenewvariable
