    all i can find about it is this.

    WAFF = (MAC FILE_TYPE) Internet Explorer Cache

    which i assume means that whomever gave it to me.. gave me the wrong thing...



    im still confused.

    WAFF = (MAC FILE_TYPE) Internet Explorer Cache
    WAFF = (MAC FILE_TYPE) MS IE Web Archive

    can you explain what that means.


    is it a image file format.. or something specific to the cache of images.

    If you save a web page in the Macintosh version of Internet Exlorer, you get a WAFF archive.. which contains all the images and such contained on the web page so that you can view it offline later.

    thanks J
    ..

    i just right clicked and saved them as jpgs.

    im trying to think of a situation where this type of file would be useful..

    as in viewing content offline it seems like a weird html alternative to a pdf. i dont know if thats a bad assumption either way.
