Save an HTML file to local drive on mobile or table and Run Later

I am looking for a way to do the following.

1. Download and save a .html file to a local drive on my mobile device or tablet?
2. Create an icon that when selected will run that .html file at a later point in time in OFFLINE mode.
3. Allow for images and video/sound files to also be placed into the directory of the .html file so they too will run offline.

In other words, on an Iphone it would be placing a group of files into a folder in a directory and then using safari to access the index.html file of that directory to run it like a Web page.

Is that possible?

If it is a simple HTML page, yes.  If it is really a page that gets generated by a server side language, then it won't run as it does on the web because all the resources on the server are no longer available.  But you still will have the HTML part so it might do what you want.

This would be a simple HTML page that would not require server resources.  It would only require JavaScript which should be on the mobile or the tablet.  

I also know that I only asked the question, "is it possible" - what I meant to say was, "How is this possible."  What I can't figure out is how you create/save a FOLDER with the html assets on a mobile or a table and then how do you find it with the browser?

Thanks.

I realized that the wording of this question wasn't the best and so I actually reworded it to get a better answer, but never received a response.
