    Any way on the iPad to save a web page to disk for viewing later while completely preserving the formatting and the images. (web archive)

    I read lots of web sites offline on my Mac using web archives made by firefox. It would be really sweet to be able to do this on my iPad.

    I thought at first it only saved text but after looking at the screen shots one of the saved docs had a graph in it. So i will have to purchase it and see how it goes. Thanks for the reply.

    I use Offline Pages.

    One feature it has that is missing from Instapaper is the "Pro" version can do a "deep trawl" so you can point it at the main page of a site and it will download all linked pages. It also works in the background, which is nice.

    Good for downloading an entire on-line newspaper before setting off on a flight, for example.

    Costs a bit more than Instapaper, though...

    Offline pages or Redit Later Pro, which I have grown to love in the whole week I've had it.

    I haven't played around with it much, so I can't speak to whether it saves everything, but Goodreader can save webpages
