Well, all I know is that I sometmes get a "Web page could not be saved"
Sometimes on the "print" page but not the orginal, and sometimes on the orginal as well.
You should know that a lot of these pages are from forguin newspapers.

Meanwhile I think I am about 90% there.
If I save the files as ".htm .html" I get the folder for all the pics, graphics, etc that I am used to and another file that is the .html as text.
I can edit out the ad graphics in the folder and keep any photos of graphs, etc. And I can edit the text file in note pad as I am used to doing

The one thing that is still different is that if I don't want any of the stuff in the folder, when I delete it, it takes the text file with it into the recycle bin.
I have to go into the recycle bin a restore only the text file. That leaves the folder in the recycle bin.

How about just putting them under Favorites?

I'd recommend you install Doro PDF Writer. It's free and all it does is create a new printer on your system. Select this printer from the print menu and it will print the webpage to a single PDF file. I'd use Firefox as a browser with the AdBlock Plus extension to remove the ads before you ever have to print them.

98 would save theses pages in two parts. A folder with all the PICS and a regular file with the text.
My old machine had a real small HD, so I taught myself enough HTML to be able to edit out all the "fluff" from both parts of a page save and keep only the real information. I do not expect to want to read cars ads in 2 or 4 years when I open these files.
In 98 I was able to open the file, then Edit it with notepad.
I cannot do this in XP. The page is saved as one file and the Edit function is not turned on.
How can I get into these files and get rid of the fluff?
If you absolutely insist on doing everything yourself, you could try clicking on "view page source" or "page source", which puts the source code into a notepad file, where you can put it together as a web page.

Mind you, it's very easy for trojans, spyware, and other viruses to enter your computer through saved html pages. You might be better served by copy-pasting text into document files instead.
