On the web browser and File>Save As>Web Page, HTML only.
Kernel 188.8.131.52, Slackware 12.0
In the web browser, I do File>Save As and choose 'Web page, HTML only'. If the html is foo.html, then this has the effect of ommiting those files that 'Webv page, complete' puts into foo_files/, the .png's etcetera. When you, later, run the file manager and click on foo.html, you have the illusion foo.html contains the same information as if you had selected 'Web page, complete'. This is because the missing little files (.png etcetera) are automatically transfered throuth the network. You do not really have them on disk.
The main thing here, is I'm saving space on disk and have what I need in a single file. When I want to read it, I disconnect from the network, thus saving time. I'm only interested in the text (let's say). The browser immediately shows me the text.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS POST: lately, when I do what I have just said, the browser keeps trying to connect. Why? Maybe this only happens with some internet pages. I'm sure it instantly produced the page.
THE INCONVENIENCE: after downloading, I want to check if the file is legible. But this way it is impossible. Any hint will be welcome.
