    Im very frustrated. What about pages I have saved that insist on updating themselves, that I want to read when I am offline? Instead of opening the file, Safari tells me I’m offline and the page is not available!

    And, what about needing to save a page in a way that it will NOT update itself when I open it, because I needed to save information on the version of that page as it was when I saved it?

    If you could help me, I’d greatly appreciate it!

      Sounds like you are not saving the page, just a link to it. Watch the video. You can use this method, or print the page and save it as a PDF in the print dialog.

        Thanks for your response! But…..No, I do save them as a “webarchive” – which works for some pages, but not for others. Saving as PDF, ok, there’s an idea. I’d rather not do it that way though, if you have any suggestions. When I used Windows and ME, or Firefox, I never had this problem. You save a file, it opens. End of story. If you wanted to update it, you did so manually. Advise?

          So it does work for some pages, but not others? Perhaps those pages have rich content (Flash, for instance). Then it wouldn’t work — not for Windows either.

    Yes thats what i get has Jack says. The other one i am stuck with when you save all of your book marks,and it says open them with Safari.
    Safari says it does not recognise them,or it can`t open them.
