To display client-side local file: Use jmol "load ?".
To upload the file to the server side when the user hits a button: get the absolute path of the local file from jmol, Use xmlhttprequest send() to upload the file to server
for reference, this is my original problem: I want to display a pdb file on the client-side first, and then upload to the server only when users are ready to submit the form.

This is essentially my problem-- getastext, getasbinary only works with ff3. Anybody know of any equivalent methods that would work with safari and IE? Thanks.
