I looked at those; they point in the right direction. The last one comes
closest, but they all emphasize X/HTML formatted output. If I understand
correctly each of them requires some sort of database behind them to capture
the output. I'm needing something to drop plain text into a file on the same
local system, whatever translates to "~/".

I need it to run on the local system, particularly avoiding a login.

I don't doubt that for a second. I'm not trying to get someone to write an
application just for me, but I was wondering if such a thing already
existed. I realize anything with Java can run JEdit, but that's not exactly
what I want, since I need it to be in a browser window.
