I have done the parsing of the form by document.getElementByID().value (which works well), and loaded and edited my XML document with the *.appendChild() method. However, nothing happens to the XML file that was loaded.
I occurred to me that maybe I had to 'commit' my changes, but I cannot find the correct method to do so on the w3c schools. I have found a micro$oft extention to the XML DOM that is called *.save() that I suppose would do the job. I am no fan of micro$oft however, and having made the rest of my site standards-compliant, it feels like crap having to use *one* MS extension.
Bottom line: Is there a standards-compliant way of saving an XML document to a file on the server?
