Grabbing text content only

Hello, Oleg.

What would be the easiest way to save web-pages as text files or plain HTML files with readable text only (I mean no images, graphics, forms, styles, etc. attached)?
I have a bunch of forum/article URLs which are like:

and am highly interested in getting text-only copies of the presented materials and comments on my computer for my upcoming socials project., I believe, could serve as the perfect example of what I actually need as a final result. Preserving online/offline links (i.e. clickable text) is not necessarily a priority. Plain de-tagged human-readable text would be quite enough.

Thanks in advance.
Kind regards

I think, it is possible with the following approach - you can install TextPipe Pro from and use the Tools - Data Mining in Offline Explorer Enterprise. TextPipe has many filters, one of them cleans HTML files from tags to get only the pure text.
