Transferring an article to an Android Tablet[edit]

swept in from the Travellers' pub

This is my first post, so please accept my apologies if I've got things a bit wrong and am posting this question in the wrong place!

We are off to Germany in a few weeks, and I'm in the process of getting info together. I have an Asus Transformer Android tablet which I am going to take for accessing the internet, where WiFi is available, and watching videos when we've had enough beer, etc. I will be taking the odd guide book, but the Wikitravel article looks excellent, and I would like to have it available offline. I have saved it as a webpage on a portable hard drive attached to my desktop PC, but (and I am now showing my technical ignorance, I suspect!), when I try and open it via my tablet, I get the standard "web page not available" message, so even though it is a reasonable size file, it is still trying to open it via the internet, rather than offline - this is doubly strange as the tablet is actually linked to the net via my home WiFi system.

I have no problem opening the saved file on my desktop PC, but I suppose I am opening it via the internet rather tan 'offline'.

Am I trying to do something that's not possible? Any help would be appreciated.
