To avoid repeating an already comprehensive answer, I will mention an
alternative approach. It is also worth saving Web pages as text. Firefox
can pick up the structure and semantics from well-structured Web pages and
produce nicely-laid hierarchical text file, which you can then load onto
your Palm handheld as standard memos and even edit them as you desire.
