I am working on creating a demo of how to use HTML5's local storage. The demo will be placed on my personal website and will append the user submitted data to the html. Can XSS stored on the client negatively affect my website?

It is a new technology, and should not be used for any sort of production.

Please read the comments to further judge whether this is a good idea.

  • @Jordan - When you implement this, as long as your server is clean (the XSS is only on the visitor's machine, so it's non-persistent XSS) then it should have no effect on the rankings. – ionFish Aug 2 '12 at 1:07
