phone line if you have a dial-up Internet connection.

download, click Customize.

2. Click the page you want to make available offline.
3. Select the Make available offline check box.
4. To specify a schedule for updating that page, and how much content to

To view Web pages without being connected to the Internet:
After you mark your favorite pages for viewing offline, you can view them
offline by following these steps:
1. Before you disconnect from the Internet, on the Tools menu, click
2. When you're ready to work offline, on the File menu, click Work Offline.
Internet Explorer will always start in Offline mode until you click Work Offline
again to clear the check mark.
3. In your Favorites list, click the item you want to view.
You can also make Web pages available offline without adding them to your
Favorites list, by saving the pages on your computer.
Follow these steps:
1. On the File menu, click Save As.
2. Double-click the folder you want to save the page in.
3. In the File name box, type a name for the page.
4. In the Save as type box, select a file type.
5. Do one of the following:
- To save all of the files needed to display this page, including graphics,
frames, and style sheets, click Web Page, complete. This option saves each file
in its original format.
- To save all of the information needed to display this page in a single
MIME-encoded file, click Web Archive. This option saves a snapshot of the
current Web page. With Web Page, complete and Web Archive, you can view all of
the Web page offline, without adding the page to your Favorites list and marking
it for offline viewing.
- To save just the current HTML page, click Web Page, HTML only. This option
saves the information on the Web page, but it does not save the graphics,
sounds, or other files.
- To save just the text from the current Web page, click Text Only. This option
saves the information on the Web page in straight text format.
