    How to save web pages and read them off-line?

    I would like to be able to save some web pages and be able to read them off-line later. I have iPad 1. Please tell me how!

    Ideally, I would like to be able to transfer the saved web pages to a Windows 7 computer for long-term reference. So can I sync them with iTunes or transfer or copy with iFunbox?

    Then there are some webpages which have snippets of information that’s like gold dust. With the web as it is, the important content could go down tomorrow with the website shutting down or just having a server catastrophe. Call me paranoid, but when I come across a nugget of web information, there are times when I like to save the entire webpage in its exact glory. Copy-pasting it into MS Word would of course, be a simpler way.

    Have you considered making the web page a PDF file? If you do it that way, then you can save that particular iteration of the web site forever - it will never change.

    There are lots of apps that can help you convert web sites to PDF, plus there are free online programs you can run from your computer. Or, there is a bookmarklet you can install in your iPad's Safari browser to convert a web site right on your iPad. Then, you can do what you wish with the PDF. See this link for the code for the bookmarklet: Guide: Creating Safari Bookmarklets

    I went to Use Evernote to save and sync notes, web pages, files, images, and more. | Evernote. However I am not too sure how I could save the web page using evernote. It looks like evernote lets us write and save but won't save images and all the features a web page could have. Then it could lose some information. Does it support "copy and paste"?

    Yes I like to save everything too. However I don't have MS Word on the iPad. Is there some free apps for iPad which would do the same thing?

    I like this idea and your input on Guide: Creating Safari Bookmarklets. I have been frustrated with the Safari for providing so few options of saving the web pages. By the way, where would the web pages be it PDF or not be saved to in an iPad? Could it be possible for me to transfer the files from the iPad to a Windows 7 system later on?

    The PDF opens in Safari, with a button to open it in iBooks. iBooks then saves it automagically to the PDF collection. From there, you can email it to your PC.

    I often use the app url2pdf. Its free and very good. The app converts the web pages to pdf and then you can open/save them in several apps.

    I followed Guide: Creating Safari Bookmarklets and created "Save as PDF" exactly according to the instructions. While on the same page I execute the bookmark, I get the error message of "Page not found" every time. I try pages on other web sites, the same problem occurs. Do I need to install something else as well?

    I've just tried on my Windows 7 system using the similar setup and it worked. I tried on Firefox and Safari and they all worked. So it must be something peculiar on the iPad or on the Safari.
