Hello, TechWR-L-ers,

I want to be able to put a giant set of HTML files (an API Reference) on my iPad so that I can show them without needing to be online.

So from my PC I uploaded a ZIP of the html files to my Dropbox account. And on the iPad I installed the Dropbox and iZip apps. And Iâve successfully opened (from within Dropbox) the ZIP in iZIP and extracted all the files. The result is that within iZIP I can now successfully click the extracted index.html file, and things look surprisingly good. (I say âsurprisinglyâ because no attempt was made when I created this DoxyS-authored API Reference to have the results viewable on mobile devices.)

So far so good.

But... Iâd really prefer to simply have a bookmark to that index.html page so that I could open it in the normal resident iPad browser (Safari, not sure how to tell which version).

Is this easily do-able?

Thanks much!
