Transforming HTML to XML.

GNU/Linux, Linux kernel 2.6, Slackware distro.

Under windows XP o.s., running Windows Internet Explorer 8 (or 7) I can save a web page in tree different ways: as an HTM(L) file and some secondary files such as GIF files in a separate directory, as a single XML file and as a plain text file. More precisely, I'm seeing a web page on the screen. Then I do File>Save As. A dialog box diplays and I only have to choose the format and click <OK>.

In linux, I use one of three web browsers: Konqueror, firefox or Seamonkey, all of them under KDE (I lack Gnome). So, is there a choice, when in linux, similar to the one stated above? Thanks for reading and regards.

If by XML format you mean the MHTML format, then you can do this under Linux using Opera, or using Firefox with the MAF extension.

I should not have messed around with HTML and XML, given my knowledge of those things is null. What would be desirable for me is to be able to save the web page as a single file. Thanks for your replay.
