several pages of content - whilst online, and those pages were to say
contain a form that interacted with SQLite, that whilst offline I might be
able to dynamically interact with SQLite, ie make entries into a field that
searches the SQLite db and have results dynamically presented to me -
although the base page template wouldn't change?

I currently have a postgreSQL db I can access from On-Rev, which is great as
long as I can connect. Once I loose connection, I can no longer do searches.
It would be great to be able to push the db data into SQLite on the iPhone,
be able to continually query it no matter where I am, then purge the data
when finished.

Does that sound doable with HTML5 + On-Rev + SQLite + iPhone?

Thanks for your thoughts.
