Ive just been reading on a googlewebmastercentral blog that the advice I saw in regards to rewriting urls is as below
"If you want to serve a static equivalent of your site, you might want to consider transforming the underlying content by serving a replacement which is truly static. One example would be to generate files for all the paths and make them accessible somewhere on your site. However, if you're using URL rewriting (rather than making a copy of the content) to produce static-looking URLs from a dynamic site, you could be doing harm rather than good."
Is there a quick way of downloading all the paths and generating files which can be then edited offline to become static pages with good URLs by renaming all the file names so that they can then be uploaded as genuine Static Pages?
