  If you have not run across this, it is a nice trick for offline, faster viewing of a webpage.

  Save the thread as a web page complete (not the windows proprietary .mht file).

  You can do this from any browser (of course if your browser is not IE, you won't be given .mht choice).

  Then just change the extent of .htm or .html to ".hta". (It won't make the app unstable).

   As long as you have IE installed, the executable "mshta.exe" (a component of IE) will open the file quickly.
If you see, a warning dialog, it is something that can be disabled easily (just search on opening an .hta file without a warning popup).

  I have done a lot of work with .hta files, writing "html applications" using .hta files is a lot of fun.

  Sometimes you have to edit the folder of adjunct files and delete the (usually .js) scripts or you get errors when you double click the .hta file.  However for a Pelles forum thread, you do not have to do this.

  Also with latest setup at MSDN, if you choose the script free view of the page, then save as above...... works like a champ.

  Hope somebody is helped by this.
