Hi there,

A client has asked if they have a website of theirs on a CD (basically contained within a folder. However the original website is slightly database driven.

They do not mind a snapshot in time of the website, as long as it is generally navigatable and all of the static information is still there.

Is there a way I can achieve this?
Note the website is not massive  perhaps 20 pages maximum.

Thanks

It would be best viewed from within Adobe.  But it is browseable.

You can make of use what is called offline browser.  I use this tool from http://www.httrack.com/
Tun it on your site and you will get all the information accessable offline and after you make it once you can with one-click to make a refresh copy.
After that you just need to take all the files and put it on a CD.
