    I downloaded a program called Pagenest and saved a website (periodic table) to my pc, and then transfered it to my ipod. When I try to load the local files by typing the local address to the files in Safari, I get this message: “Safari can’t open the page because it is a local file”. Upon further research, I found this program to save and access files to your iphone, including html files. I am wondering if this might be a way to save websites to view later offline on our ipod... like a periodic table website....

    Anyways, this application is only MAC compatible, so I was wondering if someone with a Mac, is interested in trying this out, and getting back to me... Thanks,,

    Well, I'm doing it basically for the peroidic table website.. but other sites might be useful for the ipod offline like the web based games..
