Can someone please give me an example of php code which will allow me to put a "save / save as" dialogue box on to a web page
The page will be saved as a web page (complete)

Sorry, not understanding what you are asking for. Do you want code that replicates the browser's Save function?

You don't need PHP, that is on the File menu of all browsers.

works in ie

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function save_page(){
if (document.execCommand){
<input type="button" value="save" onClick="save_page()"

Open in new window

In answer to the above question- yes I am trying to emulate the save as command in a browser. The code above does work but I need to be able to save associated images , css etc as well- like with the save as button in ie.

I want to use a button in the page so that users will not have to go to the menu in ie
