    I believe the iPhone comes with 'curl', a commandline downloading utility. If you've got Installer.app on there, you can pop open a terminal and mess with curl, as for rendering the page, Books.app might be your best bet as it seems Safari wont point locally.

    Or you could save the page in a nice format on your mac and xfer it to your iPhone, to be used with MobilePreview.app, or whatever it's called.

    Has anyone tried to open up a local file through Safari? It does something interesting, it tries, but then you get the error saying it's local. I tried just opening up // and it automatically placed file://

    hmm... i wonder if there's a hidden option somewhere.....

    Take a look at my reply here.

    You can just convert the webpage into a bookmarklet on your computer then sync your Safari bookmarks to your iPhone. Works pretty well for me...

    I was using bookmarklets until I installed the apache webserver locally on
    my iphone. Apache 1.3 compiled for the iphone is is available on
    'iphone.natetrue.com'.

    By default, the configuration file for apache (httpd.conf) sets DocumenRoot
    to "/Library/WebServer/Documents", which is the smaller of the two
    filespace partitions on the iphone. I set mine to "/private/var/root/Media/htdocs"
    and have GBytes of space to work with. Just make sure all users have
    execute privilege all the way down the path. By default Media does not.
    Fix this with "chmod +x /private/var/root/Media".

    You'll get a couple errors when you run the "cp -r * /" command
    in the readme file. This is because /var and /etc are symbolic links.
    After the first cp command, run "cp -r etc /private", and "cp -r var /private".
    Do NOT run "cp -rp * /" to maintain permissions. I did this and bricked
    my iphone *said abtf2 with an embarrassed look...* (Bricked may be
    a bit strong, I was able to recover with a FW reload.)

    Use curl (available through ibrickr, bin-tools) to download web pages,
    including javascript apps, etc... I actually run curl from my laptop, and scp
    the files to the iphone. In any case, it gives you a very functional off-line
    web browser. I also scripted something to convert .txt files to html using
    Joe Hewitt's iphonenav.css stylesheet. Makes a nice ebook reader. I don't have
    bookmarks, but my scripts split the files up into manageable chunks.

    Sorry I got so wordy; point is that apache makes a really great add-on
    to the iphone.

    this works really nice!

    I just loaded my whole 200MB vacabluary trainer up.
    only the parts with sound don't go too well.

    and for too complex pages, its a little slow. seems that some RAM is missing ;-)
