I've just tried firefox's "work offline" mode.  It seems to work fine
with some sites - serving up the content of a url that I've visited
before - eg.
http://slashdot.org/, and a link I followed this morning to

The sites that don't work in offline mode, such as
http://linuxtoday.com/ seem to have Prgama:no-cache set in the page info
- instructing your browser not to cache the content - presumably this
helps their ad revenue, but hinders your offline browsing :(

Hopt this helps
