Oh wait, you're trying to write html on a remote web server that saves
files on the client?  Hmm, what browser?  Anyway you're going to have
to use browser scripting and use browser-dependent mechanisms to get
the user's permission to access the file system.  It is messy but
necessary.  Granting arbitrary file system access to remote web
servers would be a huge security hole.
