Default Ever wondered why some of the Web pages saved with MultiIE or Spb Pocket Plus are completely unreadable?

This problem (if you save a Web page from the two above-mentioned PIE plug-ins, or just locate and copy the cached HTML files off the PIE cache as described in for example here) has always been causing a lot of headache around the Pocket PC community.

Now that Iím working on my latest PPC Web browser roundup, Iíve played with these files a bit and am proud to say itís not a secret any more. These files are compressed with GZIP and can be very easily uncompressed and then, read with any Web browser.

Just rename these files to have a .gz extension and decompress them. Under Windows, use the .EXE file found at GZip.org (main page here; use the -d parameter for decompression); on the Pocket PC, CrunchIT for PPC from Noisette Software (unfortunately, the ZIP support in Total Commander/Resco/SPP wonít work Ė they are not GZIP-compliant).
