How to d/l docs in english, not html?

By zadig ·
How do i get downloads, from Tech Republic or
elsewhere, in english rather than HTML?
Is there a way to translate?
(example) "200 ways to revive a hard drive".

How to d/l docs in english, not html?

One way:

. Navigate to the page
. Select File/Save As from your browser's menu
. Before saving, change the Save As Type to Text File

This method will give you all the text on the page including navigation links, etc.

Another way:

. Navigate to the page
. Use mouse to highlight the actual article text on the page
. Select Edit/Copy from the browser's menu
. Open Notepad or another text editor
. Paste the text from the clipboard

I hope this helps.

Without resporting to special hardware those are the two methods.

However if what you want is only the text then the Save As method will not do. You will see all of the HTML code as text.

Use the option for "printer friendly code" that appearson all Tech Republic pages and then use your mouse to select the text. That way there is only one big page to copy. If you want the pictures then right click over it and select the Save Image As option. Give it a name you'll recognize.

You can paste the text into your favorite word processesor and insert the images.

Hope that helps,
Al Franco, II

What you need to do is convert it with a filtering program. Do a search for html2txt.zip.
