I am Júlio Reis, from Portugal, and I'm an avid reader of W3C's papers: CSS, 
Accessibility, HTML, XML, XHTML... I usually look for the ZIP of HTML files, 
to download and view without the need for a live connection, which comes in 
very handy.

Regarding the ZIP for HTML 4.01, I'd like to say it's not standalone, that 
is, it requires a live connection to preserve style sheet information. If 
you look at the source of any HTML file in the ZIP, you'll notice the line

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href=

showing up all the time. This makes for both Explorer and Navigator trying 
to download style information from your site. The solution is simple: just 
remove the forementioned line from every HTML document, and it'll work fine.

Greetings, and keep up the good work!

Júlio Reis, GlobalSoft, Portugal.
