This should be very easy to implement. But a lot of user (for example  
notebook user) don't like to run a WWW server on their slow machines.

In my opinion it would be much better to convert the links inside the  
documents to .html.gz. And all Unix/Linux WWW browsers should be able to  
uncompress the documents. With netscape and lynx for example there's no  

An other question: is there a way to get which WWW browser the user would  
like to use and if there's a WWW server installed in a script?
