I think you can do it by using simple Ajax; check out this link;

Or you can do it by usinh PHP like;

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","peter","abc123");
if (!$con)
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

// some code

You cannot fetch data from MySQL db to a plain HTML page. You will need to use a server-side programming language like PHP or ASP.NET/C# to connect to MySQL db

There are two main ways to connect to a MySQL database server from .NET: MySQL Connector/ODBC (aka. MyODBC) and MySQL Connector/Net. While the ODBC connector is cross-platform and is compliant with ODBC standards, the .NET version is generally the better choice when using MySQL with .NET.

You can do that using AJAX and activex objects and if you dont want any server side technology to be involved, then its not possible and you can check these healthy threads discussing why its not possible and how its not possible as well
