Thanks, Len. We used to build CDs out of websites, but now the task will be different as the web pages are created on the fly by a content management app (databased). Haven't dealt with such an animal yet. Any guidance will be appreciated.

On a related note, do you have experience with http://www.astaware.com/new_nr_cd.html?
I bought some licenses of their first version, but wasn't happy with their solution. I wonder if you guys have used the newer versions and found it useful.

<To copy raw HTML to a single, searchable file, use Acrobat's "File >
Open Web Page > Get Entire Site". Acrobat Catalog can create a
searchable index as
long as the client has Acrobat Reader Plus Search.


I have a PDF and CHM library wrapped in a slick HTML/Java interface. So,
I must copy the sub-site to a folder with altered relative links. I am
currently evaluating these three tools:
http://www.webstripper.net/
http://www.httrack.com
http://www.bluesquirrel.com/products/whacker/
HTTTRACK seems like the best of the bunch so far.


There are plenty of outfits that build searchable CDs for you. I prefer
to the work myself, but there are few tools available. SPY-CD seems to
be the only tool I could find:
