I don't think this is the right mailing list to ask that Q.

You can take advantage of server-side processing to let the user upload
his/her addressbook
file then manipulate it on serverside then create a dynamic html file from
that information
and present it to the user. You might be able to do this with signed ActiveX
or signed JAVA applets,
but  this is not really HTML. It's using some form of CGI or ServerPage
techniques like JSP, ASP, or PHP.
