Hello friends.

A question of somebody, who has no internet connection at home.

Sometime you find wiki pages with handbooks ore tuts to learn how to use software the right way. Something like this: http://www.madtracker.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

They are all well layed out and usefull; you click a link about a subjet of interrest for you an you got the datas.

Is it possible to just downloade this books in a way, that it works at home the same way?

Up to now, I'm coppiing page by page into a word file an use it this way.

Is there another legal way?

Saving pages manually is a pain as you have to edit href links afterward. Plus this method is non portable so when you transfer the pages to your home computer, the href will have to be edited again. Now imagine a wiki that has say 100 or more links :scared:.

What you are looking for is an Offline Browser often referred to as a Website Copier or Website Ripper.

Look at this Google search http://www.google.com/search?q=offline+ ... S:official

How good they are will depend on how 'deep' the ripper mines and saves linked and reference pages. Make sure the one you choose has an option for depth level and saves each sub reference automatically or you will end up with many 404's and or blank refs.
