    Hi dw,
    
    Sorry not to have mentioned your input in my previous post, as it was duly
    noted.
    
    I use "Internet Explorer" and had previously tried your suggestion with only
    partial success. In using the "save page as" feature, everything presently
    on the screen is saved, toolbars, buttons, etc., and whatever part of the
    book page is presently in view only - if the entire page is not in view
    pending down scrolling it does not reproduce and would require a second save
    to reproduce portions not presently shown on the first. In other words the
    book page is not reproducible separately from the surrounding computer
    mechanics and acts as though it is part of the same. As you can plainly see,
    I am having trouble even explaining what appears to be going on.
    
    Please don't get the idea that I am some kind of computer novice, as I am
    not and have been downloading, saving, and printing from the internet for
    years without running into the problems apparently associated with this
    site. I am, however, apparently a novice as respects dealing with digitized
    material and/or whatever other format these books are being presented in. It
    does, however, appear that, as a first step, I will have to get to a
    computer with high speed access to start solving my problem.
    
    Thanks.
    
    Henry
