Thanks for the reply. Some of my target users will not have the web
experience to understand the right-click thing. I’m wondering if there
isn’t a way to present them with a “Save” button that would somehow then
send the right-click message. Any thoughts?
Also, what about Mac users? I haven’t had a Mac for years now, but
don’t they still use a one-button mouse? How do they do a “Save target

Pretty simple thing actually…
Take the data from the forms, store it somewhere (db maybe or session)
and then make an xml view (.rxml) that displays it back to the users.
you can’t easily save things to a user’s hard drive, but you can make a
link for them that they can right-click and save. (the link would
obviously point to the controller and action that would render the rxml
(Just be sure to do render :layout=>false when you render the rxml
Hope that nudges you along a bit.

I want to develop a web application that allows a user to input data
into a set of forms and then save that data in an XML file format to
their hard drive. Can anybody point me to a Ruby\Rails tutorial that
