SYMPTOMS

After you make specific Web pages available for offline viewing, you discover that those pages, although they appear to be correctly set, are not actually available offline.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because some Web sites use "no-cache" or "Pragma: no-cache" headers. If the file cannot be saved to the cache, then it cannot be made available offline.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
