If you download the whole site you can read it on your laptop on the plane. You can also email it to a friend who cannot get it on his computer. If your friend cannot get it, he may have a blocking filter that he may have bought, or that was already installed on his computer when he bought the computer, or his service provider may have the site blocked. You can also take it on a USB stick or a CD to a friend whose computer does not have internet access. It might also be useful if the author of the web site should drop dead and the website disappear forever. Some people attempt to download the entire site using their browser. This does not work because of the structure of the site. Instead, download it as a zip file, then unpack the zip file on your computer. The size of the zip file is about 0.9 Megabytes. Be patient, it takes a long time to download on a slow connection. No matter what operating system your computer uses, there are programs available to unpack zip files. Windows XP has a built in capability to unpack zip files. The next paragraph in this article is detailed instructions for downloading from Windows XP.

Detailed instructions to download with Windows XP: Print these instructions out before you start, otherwise you cannot see the instructions on screen after you click on the link.

Certainly I would wish that this website and others like it could be made available free of charge after my death. However, the adversaries of dance will do their best to see that this does not happen.
