    Save for off-line (I.E 6)

    There are two sites that I use regularly for date conversions.
    http://www.24hourtranslations.co.uk/dates.htm
    http://www.wallandbinkley.com/mcc/mcc_main.html
    I have added these to my favourites and can view off line and the conversion works just fine. If I delete the temporary files on my pc, I lose the ability to use them off-line. My concern is these sites are ever removed and I delete the temp files, then I am up <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> creek.

    How can I save these converters for future reference in the worst case scenario

    And before anybody comments - I am doing an History of Art course and not a Goth.

    Have you though about (tried) doing a SaveAs?
    I always get confused by the options presented, but I believe the "Web Page, complete" would be the best option. (You should find a sub-folder is created to hold any graphics used.)

    Completely agree. You should be able to save the page as an HTML file and simply open it and use it.

    Alternatively IE6, at least with OfficeXP, has an option under the "File" menu to "Edit with MS Word". I have used this successfully a number of times.

    Try Save as .mht the third option on the pulldown when you get the "Save As" dialogue box. This works well for me when other methods don't, and I wish I knew why but it seems the best for me.

    That is true. The "mht" stands for an MSHTML Document. It is an Archive file which incorporates into one file the main HTML file plus any associated "anchors" (such as inline images) or even content from other sources. This makes it easy to store the document -- but less easy to modify.

    In the case above, at least the first page has no images or other anchor elements -- so it could be just as easily saved as an htm file -- I believe.

    I have tried the save as under web page complete and mtl while the Latin resource site works as a save as, the other won't.

    Like SMBP say's I wish I knew why?

    Re: Save for off-line (I.E 6)

    Probably something is off in the code. When you download it as Web Page complete (first option) you should get the Medieval Calendar Calculator.htm file, plus the Medieval Calendar Calculator_files folder containing mcc_nav.htm and mcc_generic.htm. The 'nav' file seems to be used above the line while 'generic' is used below.

    I suspect he actually has several like the generic file -- one for each of the calendar options (Printable, Hereford Use, Nicholas of Lynn, and Custom). So, ideally you would need to download ALL of those files.

    When I load the page -- after saving locally -- the bottom section does not appear. Even though the generic file is on my computer, for some reason the code is not loading it correctly. If I select to Copy the location of the BLANK page, I am given what appears to be the correct address: file://C:WINDOWSDesktopmcc_generic.html. Interestingly, there is an inappropriate "L" at the end of that -- but it does not seem to make a difference to IE.

    The error message that I get is:

    Line 826
    Character 5
    Error: access is denied
    Code: 0
    URL: file://C:WINDOWSDesktopmcc_generic.htm

    So... why is access being denied?

    The section of the code appears to be here:

    813 function LoadCalendar (s) {
    814// alert ("LoadCalendarns="+s+"nfirstVisit="+firstVisit) ;
    815 if (s=="auto") { // loading automatically on call from mcc_blank.htm
    816 if (firstVisit) {
    817 s = DefaultCalSource;
    818 firstVisit = false;
    819 }
    820 } // if s still = "auto", user is backing out of the site

    821// alert ("LoadCalendarns="+s+"nfirstVisit="+firstVisit) ;
    822 if (s == "custom") {
    823 s = prompt ("Enter the URL or directory path and file name of your customized calendar.","")
    824 }
    825 if ((s != null) && (s != "") && (s != "auto")) {
    826 lowerFrame.document.location.href = s;
    827 DefaultCalSource = s;
    828 }

    Which makes sense. It is the "Lower Frame Document" that we are not seeing. This is where I hope Jefferson (or one of the other coding guru's) can come in here and tell us why this error is occurring. I am out of time and have to get to work!!
    ________

    One thing I notice is this line: "loading automatically on call from mcc_blank.htm" -- which implies another file might be needed...

    Also, my recollection is that one of the MS security updates 'breaks' the "document.location.href" reference. Give me some time to locate my data on this...

    Re: Save for off-line (I.E 6)

    The second site uses frames, so it's a bit messier.

    For single pages that I want to link back to their source, I recommend:

    (1) Save As MSHTML
    (2) Open the MSHTML file
    (3) Save as HTML (only, not complete)

    This creates "absolute" links back to all the resources linked into the page.

    In this case, it seems to work just as an MHT, but I didn't go offline to confirm that. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
