Note that every format includes the date on which the Internet file was accessed. That's terribly important because things come and go on the Internet with alarming speed. If there is information that you know you want to preserve, be sure to back it up. You can do this be pressing the File tab on the top menu of your browser and linking to Save As. Then save the file with a name and a directory on your own computer where you'll be able to find it if you need it again. Record its location in a notebook or other safe place. Trust me, the extra effort is worth it.
