Usually I save web pages to later (mostly offline) reading in PDF format. It's really easy to transfer to anywhere, And the results are nice. I've installed Primo PDF to that.

I found a website with some little flash guidances, that I want "to embed" to my saved webpages, and (until where I know) PDF doesn't store flash movies.

What format do you suggest to save the web page to later offline reading, preserving the flash movies?

PS: (I know the fact that some flash movies are protected to copy/leech/etc. I sure that flash movies in the website that I want to save are "xcopy-able") :)

I know, that's why I only said "related" :) -- it's not only about the full site though. The top software recommended is something you might want to check out. – slhck Jun 27 '11 at 18:36
"some flash movies are protected to copy/leech/etc" is nonsense. Your browser must download the movie in order to show it, which means you can download it too. 99% of such "protections" can be defeated with wget --referer or curl -e. – grawity Jun 27 '11 at 19:44
