It seems like you have opened this file by double-clicking on it. In order to test your build in a browser you need to load this file from a web server. You can either upload this file and the rest of the files from a Defold HTML5 bundle to a web hosting service OR host them using a local web server on your home network.
The example will save and load a file containing a Lua table with a single value key-value pair representing a highscore. Loading and saving is done using sys.load() and sys.save(). Also refer to the Working with files manual.
If you want to play with these examples, you can get the project on Github.
Do you want to see more examples? Why not write a few yourself and submit a pull request? We love contributions.
