You don't have to use Internet Explorer (thankfully). Most, if not all, web
browsers have a command on the File menu that allows you to save the page
you're viewing locally as an HTML file, and some will even save all linked
Some web development programs (I know FrontPage used to be able to do this)
will allow you to save an entire web site locally (good for studying how
site architecture is designed). If you do that, you'll have all the HTML and
linked files and can open them in Word.
