I recommend the following programs:

Good, since sites disappear or are changed, or if you just want to have
one easily available. Set Starting Page Properties and Project Properties
before each project. The only offline-browser which I have tested which
works good. Sometimes one file can be repeatedly downloaded in all
eternity from a database. Shareware $49:95.

download 144 Mb.
