How do I create a javascript subscription page

P: n/a
What I am trying to do is create a form that people can use to enter
their email address to sign up for a mailing list. Once they enter
their email address, I want the script to open up a txt file that is
stored on the server and write the email adress to the bottom of the
txt file. Then close and save the file.

Is this at all possible to do with client side script on any kind?

go to http://www.thetimelineband.com/emailform.html to see a same of
what the page would look like. Currently, all this form does is email
the info to me and then I have to enter the persons email address
manually into the file.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks gurus.

No, JavaScript can not write files on the server. You have to do this
with a server-side language like PHP.
