How to work with MHTML files
Authored by: plaguebearer on Dec 31, '04 01:12:51AM

It seems to me that a person could write an applescript to do all these steps. The script could even be saved as an app and have the MHTML file type assigned to open with that app. Then all you'd have to do is double click on the file and it'd be converted and opened.

I don't know enough applescript to accomplish this myself. But, I don't see technical roadblocks that'd prevent it from working.

to work with MHTML files - WAF Inspector? Nope!

Thanks for the pointer to a cool little utility, WAFInspec, which lets you extract items from the cache file MSIE generates.

Unfortunately, feeding it *.mht or *.mhtml files simply brings up a message, "That doesn't appear to be a WAF file, so I don't think I'll open it."

Perhaps someone will write a utility not just to extract pictures, but to assemble the original web page (that was archived), as laid out in the MHTML file.
