I am currently deploying a website using DotNetNuke. I have been asked if it is possible to make this site available for offline usage - let me clarify that;
The idea behind it is that the database and files are copied to a specific location on the network so that a laptop is able to copy the files and database onto it's local disk to run locally. This is fine and works a treat.
What is now required is the website to be copied to static HTML files for deployment to a CD for offline use. I have tried using several different website copier programs (the best result so far was from HTTrack from download.com), to some good results,
but none is able to replicate the website properly.
From my point of view it will take a lot of re-engineering to make this work at all.
I am wondering if it is best to continue down the route of attempting to replicate the website, or build a system that will read the database and build static html pages that look similar to the live production site.
Does anyone have any ideas please?

Have you searched snowcovered?
I believe there was an app or two at one point that flattened DNN sites into HTML, don't recall any specifics though.
