[conspire] concatenating web pages?

Well in terms of the HTML that would not be valid HTML... there would
be multiple <html> and <head> and <body> tags.  but browsers are very
tolerant of that kind of thing.  The bigger concern would be
javascript or style sheet issues.  If you run into those, then
creating a container web page that had <iframe> tags could possibly
get around the issue.  But for simple pages your trick will work a lot
of the time.

If all you want is the text, you could always use "lynx -dump" to
extract the text of the page...
