Not a lot really - but its messy and less portable
than a pdf. You'd probably have to write a script
in order to make it seamless to use
on a regular basis and take care of all the
compressing/decompressing in the background.
That would potentially be a better solution than
mht as wget can recurse to any depth. Mht is
limited to one page per file (as is my ps2pdf kludge).

What'd be wrong with a combination of wget|tar|gzip?
