.mht is an IE specific format for saving a web page (compressed ...)
I found out if I use Firefox and a plugin called unmht I could then print to .pdf etc fine - I havnt tried chrome yet, and havnt tested it from home where Im typing this - on a Windows 7 Pro machine and IE 9

That's a very bad idea. Given the number of spam articles that get posted, it wouldn't be long before they started including script to automatically open the spam site as soon as you looked at the article.
