Like I said it's proprietary to Microsoft and Internet Explorer 5 and
above.
(But I too am interested in finding a cross platform, standard, free
option)

HTA is Html Applications. Essentailly you add a HTA header to a standard
HTML page. This then tells IE to allow the application to access the PC.
A security acceptance window is shown.

You can find out more at:

It's not the answer any of us is looking for.........but it is a
solution for now
