Physical Characteristics / Technical Requirements
The websites were captured using HTTrack, a free offline browser utility. HTTrack downloads a website from the Internet to
a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer.
HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure allowing you to open a page of the mirrored website in your browser,
browse the site from link to link.
