Here's one for the HTML experts out there.
We have an intranet site which provides reports to users. Graphics form part
of the report. Apart from reading the report from a browser (off a server),
the users want to be able to download the report BUT they want to be able to
download to the local PC as ONE file. That is, when they click a link for
report_doc they want to save report_doc.html and its associated image files
as one file or into one folder. Since images can't be embedded (they are
referenced) in an HTLM document, the solution I suggested is to create a
Java script to do this download (the implementation of this I leave to the
programmers). Has anyone had this problem before? Any solutions?
Please respond to me personally as I receive the digest. I will post a
summary of solutions.
