    Hi,

    Do a web search for specific tools to do just that. IE8 no longer supports
    saving linked sub-pages.

    If this is your own web site, use your development tool (eg. Expression Web)
    to save a copy of the site to your local drive).

    Usually web developers do all their development locally and once tested then
    copy it to their production web server.

    If you are talking about a hosted web site service like Blogger.com,
    Geocities (no longer operating) or Yahoo's Small Business web sites, then
    no. These types of sites require the host environment to work correctly.

    Regards.

    Google still works:

    http://www.google.com/search?q="web+crawler"

    If the site uses Flash, Silverlight, AJAX, or server-side scripts to
    hide content sources then you probably won't be able to steal all of
    their content. If they use a robots.txt file to request robot exclusion
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robots_exclusion_standard) but you
    disregard that request, and if they detect your crawling (today or later
    in their logs), they can report you to your ISP for operating a
    non-compliant crawler.

    Also found an addon tool called "Scapbook" for IE and Firefox!
