I'm trying to buid a 100% client side javascript app with no interactions
with the outside and no web server.

I saw in the openLayer javascript API that it's possible to load a remote
OSM file by its URL:

                var layer = new OpenLayers.Layer.Vector("Polygon", {
                    strategies: [new OpenLayers.Strategy.Fixed()],
                    protocol: new OpenLayers.Protocol.HTTP({
                        url: "myosmfile.osm",   //<-- relative or absolute
URL to your .osm file
                        format: new OpenLayers.Format.OSM()
                    projection: new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326")

Do you know if there is any way to load that same OSM file direclty from the
local filesystem using maybe the HTML5 Read/Write file API or the HTML5
embeded database in the browser.

Thanks a lot,
