3-29] Can I distribute a web site on a CD-ROM?

(2003/07/08)

You need to include the content and a browser on the CD. Some products that
might be helpful are:

PHD Computer Consultants - Dynamic CD (run dynamic ASP sites from CD):

Softword Technology - Browse and View:

Faico - NavRoad

See http://www.phdcc.com/helpindex/cdroms.html for some suggestions on
putting web pages on CD-ROM. See http://www.spy-cd.com/ for a Java-based
CD search engine.

See http://www.microsoftfrontpage.com/content/ARTICLES/fp_to_cdrom.html
for an article about creating HTML CDs using FrontPage 2002.

If it doesn't need to be in HTML format, the full Adobe Acrobat writer
can reportedly convert an entire web site into a PDF document.

Incidentally, if you burn the disc with plain ISO-9660, you don't have
to worry about the upper-case filenames conflicting with lower-case names
in URLs. The filesystem code on Windows, Mac, and UNIX converts the names
to upper case before comparing them. This may not hold for other formats,
e.g. Rock Ridge.
