    I'm using Safari 1.3.1. Is it possible to save a page as a web archive for offline browsing?

    Not sure about 1.3.1, but in version 2 it is on File menu, Save As...

    If not, you can choose print and save it as a PDF for offline viewing.

    The save as web archive feature is available in version 2.0.

    I am creating a HTML signature for Mail.app and it has to be saved as web archive instead of PDF. :(

    Could you save it as a PDF and then convert it from Preview? What format are you after exactly? Does it have to be HTML? :)

    Saving a page from Safari 2.0 gives two options, save as a .HTML (page source) or a .WEBARCHIVE.

    No, it's a binary plist in disguise :mad: You can get a less weird format by saving as a "web page, complete" from Firefox (but if what you need really is a Tiger-style webarchive, you're going to need Safari 2.0).

    It might be a good idea to back up a little here. Are you working from this tip? That's really for Tiger anyway, I wouldn't count on it working with earlier versions of Mail.

    I have just realised that it doesn't work with the earlier version of Mail. :eek: Yes, I was following that tip.

    Thanks for the link! But offline browsing is not exactly what I intend to do but workaround to insert HTML into Mail.app (version 1.3.1) signature.
