Sounds like it would work, but I wouldn't be the one programming it.

I don't have shell access yet, so wget won't work for me. (Finds old
note to self to get it, moves it closer to top of pile.) I was thinking
of saving each page with Firefox. Not totally sure if it would work even
with relative references. (Yep, small site.) Then again, I'd have to
make sure everything was named properly, ... sounds like even with
relative references, getting and learning wget would be easier. One more
idea bites the dust.
Thanks for the info!
