      Quicker yet, Mike: create yourself a .bat file:-

      type c:\temp\page1.htm > c:\temp\concatenated.txt
      type c:\temp\page2.htm >> c:\temp\concatenated.txt
      type c:\temp\page3.htm >> c:\temp\concatenated.txt
      .
      .
      .
      type c:\temp\page99.htm >> c:\temp\concatenated.txt

      Note > for the first input file (create or clear the output file), >> for the subsequent input files (append to the output file).

      Then run it from the dos command prompt, and open the output file in your editor of choice.

      That's NoteTab, naturally :)
