I tried to open this site in OE internal browser (so that I can easily take some links) but it gave me error asking for javascript.
The site is http://www.mcmaster.com/
Would You be so kind and advise me regarding properly configuring OE for download whole catalogue so that I can burn it on CD. Thanks.

PS
When already asking I noted that on some sites when I click on thumbnail for enlarging in internal browser OE gave me possibility to save only as bitmap, but IE or Firefox can save the same picture as jpg. Also ctrl + alt to pick link opens sometimes my browser and it can`t pick the link. Am I missing something in program configuration? I didn`t pay attention on which sites this happened so I have no examples. Sorry.

It is a tough site. It uses session cookies and calculates page URLs from them. The only way to load all pages of the catalogue is to use URL Macros:

http://www.mcmaster.com/ctlg/DisplCtlgPage.asp?ReqTyp=CATALOG&CtlgPgNbr={:1..4000#a}&CtlgEdition=&RelatedCtlgPgs={:#a},{:#a+1}

You will be able to view the pages using the Project Map.
