Question:

Q. How can I open local HTML files, i.e. pages stored on the smartphone rather than on the Internet, complete with their images and links?

Answer:

A. The simplest way to get your pages and their images onto the P800 or P900 is to pop your Memory Stick Duo into a USB card reader and use Windows Explorer. To keep things tidy, copy the files into a named folder on their own. Make a note of the start page filename.

In either Internet or Opera applications (both work, though the latter is quite a bit faster at rendering text and images), use ‘Open web page’, typing in a special ‘local’ address, e.g. ‘file:///d:/myfolder/index.html’, using the relevant folder and start page names. All being well, your HTML page/site should now appear on-screen, with images, and you can browse round it as you would on your hard disk, or on the real Internet. This is a great way to keep sets of hypertext reference material on your smartphone!
