Offline web browsing?
hi, sorry if this is a dumb question. (I am blonde lol)
Is there a web software that I can put on my tungsten that would 'hotsync' with my computer and get a certain website onto my palm so i could look at it later on?
IE, it would get all the messages from this site, and then i could view them offline later on my palm?
The bluetooth is not a possiblitly with me as my phone does not do it, and being a student, I have no money.
Thanx and big kisses for anyone who can help me!

Avantgo is great. The version for the TT is still in beta, but improving, from my understanding. (Unless you use a Mac, then forget about it.) (There is iSilo X and Plucker. But these seem like a PITA to me.) (I have been using Avantgo on all the Palms that I have had, with the excepption of my TT (I am a Mac user.)
Go to www.avantgo.com
It is awesome, and more importantly, easy to use. And it is fairly easy to install. There is a lovely choice of channels, and the option for custom channels. Did I mention that this service is FREE?

This isn't exactly what you asked for, but maybe they'll work until AvantGo is ready. Both are for converting the text of Web pages to the PalmDOC format to read on the TT, so you'll need a reader such as Palm Reader to view them.
You could copy the URL of the page you want to save into Doc-on-Demand . That site will convert the page to DOC. Then you have to save the DOC file and sync it over.
Or what I do each morning: Save the web pages I want to read later (usually news/magazine articles) on my PC. Then use mdoc to convert all of the files to DOC at one time. mdoc lets you select multiple html files; it then in one step converts the files and prepares them for HotSync.
With each of these, you will get some extra junk since the two programs are more or less just converting the html code to text. At worst there will be a few pages at the beginning of the converted file that you will have to scroll through. It doesn't really bother me since I'll be deleting the files after I have read them anyway

avantgo is limited to the available avantgo channels.
Isilox is very comprehensive and the best for live conversion of websites. several parameters can be set.
it converts and optimizes websites for PDA viewing and directly sync on the next hotsync.
you would need Isilo to view the converted websites
http://www.turcic.com best resource for PDA friendly websites
there is also Handstory
its easier than isilo, but not as comprehensive. and it has its own clipping service just like avantgo
if avantgo channels is enough for you. thats fine.
just try these options and see whats best for you.

I do wish they would hurry up with that OS 5 version, though.
