Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
Chances are that (sometimes) the "little files" are still your browsers
cache, and it doesn't need to go and fetch them from the net. At other
times (depending on the size of cache you set) they may have been removed
from the browsers cache, and it will try to satisfy the links in your
saved HTML file by getting the files from the net. Which won't work too
well when you're disconnected ;}
Thanks for your reply. I understood well, I think. Now let me give you some reasons for this bizarre procdure (disconnection).
There is the file as I'll see it five years from now, when the links most probably have vanished. And there is the file as I am seeing it now, after loading it from disk, when the links will be satisfied. How do I know I've got a descent looking file? Only way seems to be disconnection from internet and waiting till the browser gives up.
To be honest, it is some little time ago that I discovered that work behind my back the o.s. or internet does. I hope I didn't bore you too much. Regards.
