Off-Line Internet: A Timesaver


1. Installation

- The (Cell Biochemistry) and the (CytoRelay) files are downloaded via the Download link on the Cell Biochemistry or CytoRelay frontpages into a preestablished directory for example: d:\classimed.
- The downloaded files are unzipped into the above directory: d:\classimed.
- The unzipped Cell Biochemistry or CytoRelay files are addressed by entering: into the URL box of the Internet browser.
- Both off-line URLs can be stored as bookmarks for later use.

2. Background
2.1 Off-Line Internet Concept

- Internet browsers permit to address HTML files on hard disks (1) or CD-ROMS (2) off-line. This can be used to configure HTML files for simultaneous on-line and off-line display from computer harddisks or CD-ROMs.
- Calling commands like for example: href= or src= are provided for this purpose without upstream directory tree.
- Furthermore all files of a given Internet site are in addition kept in the same directory. Calling commands (links) contain then only the name of the addressed files like for example: href=cellbio.html

2.2 Realisation

- The files of the Cell Biochemistry and CytoRelay information packages are assembled in the same directory. The link:
<a href="cellbio.html"> Cell Biochemistry </a>
upon call by the browser will then be automatically reconstituted to:
<a href=""> Cell Biochemistry </a>
for the on-line situation and to:
<a href="file:///d:/classimed/cellbio.html"> Cell Biochemistry </a>
for the off-line operation mode.

Off-line Internet, a time saver !

Download the ZIP file containing all CytoRelay pages for example into directory: d:\classimed\, unzip into the same directory, enter the address: file:///d:/classimed/cytorel.html into the URL field of the Internet browser to directly access text & figures on your harddisk free of network delays (further information).
