Software highlights: Web Strippers
As titillating as the name "web stripper" sounds, these programs are relatively mundane.  They simply download entire web sites onto your hard drive.  The result is that you have all the content available off-line.  This is useful if you need an entire web site as a back-up, reference, or to use as a template.  Sometimes this is good insurance if a site goes down and you really need the otherwise irretrievable information.

HTTrack
The program is very easy to use and has had very few problems.  It is apparently sophisticated enough to know its way around even those sites with more unusual code (e.g., Java and/or secure connections).  Of the programs I have used in this category, this one was undoubtedly the best.  I may post the reviews of others at some later date, but try this one first.
