There's a site I need to download to work on. It consists of quite a number
of pages, with lots of links to anchors/pages. What's the most efficient way
for me to download the whole nine yards and be able to simulate it's linking
on my system? (I realize changing the Site properties will be an essential
step once I've downloaded everything.)

Thanks!

What I meant in saying I'll have to change "Site" propeties is that this is a feature in Dreamweaver, which I use, that tells the computer the full path to the files for all the links. It's how I'll tell Dreamweaver the path is now to the given folder on my computer.

Depends on the site. If it is a PHP or ASP site it will only download the HTML portion of the code since the active code never gets served to your browser. If you tried to dl this forum it would never work for you anyway since the underlying code is never served. There are some programs out there that will let you map an entire html based web site and dl the pages. Once it is downloaded as long as the directory structure for graphics or whatever is kept as it was on the web server it will run with no problem from your local drive. If there is a problem you can always set up PWS to run it locally.

As a matter of fact I think Visio will map entire web sites.
