On the server or on the client's machine?

When you opened your text file did you be sure to save it with the extension as .html?

i can't save it as any other. i have a program that outputs the name of the song that is currently playing into a text file. i need to read that text file into my webpage for all to see what i am listening to.

Load the text file into a hidden <iframe>. Then you can read the value out of the <iframe>. If only the name of a single song is in the file, you could even just make the frame visible and just have it display the text straight.

ex.


<iframe src="myfile.txt" style="display:none;"></iframe>


Make sense?
