	You could certainly use a tool to download an entire site, or an 
entire chunk of a site (below a certain point).

	Given the current structure of the FAQ (and the way it might 
adapt if it were converted to TWiki), I don't think there's any way 
we could put all this stuff on a single page.

	However, the current XML nature of the source for the FAQ would 
tend to lend itself more easily towards generating a separate single 
file or Acrobat version, whereas TWiki probably would not do that 
easily (if at all).

	This is really a question that should be aimed towards Ulrich -- 
to see if he can also give the community a single file or acrobat 
version, in addition to what is currently available.
