view "saved as" LQ page from floppy?


I often save a page to hard disk so I can view it with out my internet connection running ( often its my internet/lan I'm working on ) but when I copy the saved page to a floppy to view on different computer it wont open properly.
I don't care about the graphics I just want the text.
Whats an easy way to deal with this?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

<edit> most often its a LQ page I'm saving

What exactly is happening? Is anything coming up? Are you getting an error? More information is needed.

To save without graphics most browsers have a File -> Save Page As and then a box ususally containing a drop down menu with an option such as Save as Web Page HTML only.

Sorry,
I thought that the default when I open "save page as" would be the only way a web page could be saved.
When I opened "files of type" and chose "HTML only" I can now view properly from a floppy.
I guess I need to stop being afraid to change or look for options without being told to do so. Its just That I had trashed my computer a few times from not knowing what I was doing I guess that made me gun shy.

Thanks for the help and reply darthtux.

No problem, toastermaker.

Most things can be tried using your user account. Then if you mess something up, it usually just means deleting a config file in your home directory. If you try something elsewhere as root or even a config file in your home directory, back it up first. Then if something goes wrong you can replace the file and go on.
