Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property Window.processXML

Hi -
I have some javascript that works when I run it from a server, but I
need to run it locally. When I try to execute it locally I get the
following error:
Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property
Window.processXML
Is there a way to get around this issue?

It's a cross domain issue. You can't access the document of a frame if
it's loaded from a domain that's different from the original page
location. The are hacks to get around it, but it's there as a security
protocol, so someone can't use JavaScript to transmit, say a password
when you enter it on another Web site.

protocol, so someone can't use JavaScript to transmit, say a password
when you enter it on another Web site.
So it sounds like the issue locally is that I don't have a domain when
the source is say file://C:/js/files/deafult.htm. Does that sound
correct?
Does one of the hacks involve using 'document.domain'? Could you point
me in the right direction to track down a hack that would allow me to
run locally instead of from a server?
