erm this might be wrong
you need to get the user to run an exe of some form to do file i/o.
if you are running it server side then file i/o is not a problem as the scripting engine will take care of it. look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/ for the jscript reference.

1) Create a frame. Pretend its called "textFrame". The source should be the file you wish to read. NOTE: It CANNOT be an <iframe>.
2) You can read the contents of the page from a different frame like so:
var string = parent.textFrame.document.body.innerHTML;
