I decided to put this on a new thread because the problem that I now have is very different from my original problem.

I was trying to load data from another website using Javascript. Originally, I was running an HTML file on my local computer to retreive a webpage from the Internet using XMLHttpRequest. From what I read on the Internet, it sounds like it is not possible to access websites on a different domain, so I saved the page I was trying to access on my local hard drive and changed the URL to "file:///C:/..." but it still does not work. The responsetext method returns an empty string.
