There are a number of Mac programs that do the same thing, and I'm  
_sure_ there are Windows apps as well.  Maybe a port of "wget" is out  
there somewhere?

In terms of getting a site on a disc, all that is really needed is  
for internal links to be relative instead of absolute.  (And, any  
server-functionality would likely not work.)  Pages produced from a  
database would be converted to flat HTML files.
