Web pages that were saved on my computer only show text without pictures.

I have numerous web pages that I have saved on my computer, and back up drive that are only showing text, but not pictures. They display an "X" where the picture is supposed to be. The strange part is that some pictures are displayed on some pages, but not all of them. I've also tried to save those same pages again, but get the exact same problem. Those pages didn't work on another computer either.

The solution is fairly simply. Whilst you are saving the web page code you are not saving the image files that are being referred to and in the same relative path. Very often that path is images\pic.jpg. If these are not pages that you have written this is because of copyright and the way that the page has been written prevents you from saving the pictures.

An easy solution would be to "print" the web site as either PDF (if you have the PDF rasterization engine) or to the "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer".

The MS Office Image writer can write the web sites as MDI's or TIFs - both format fully supported by WindowsXP and above (I'm not sure if 2k has a viewer for MDI's)

But with these solutions, the entire page and images are captured into one document.

The easy solution is to click edit, click select all, click copy...Then paste what you just copied into a word document. Pics and all will be retained.

I've done some searching, and came across an article which has a comparison of several web browsers. The person that wrote that article recommended using Opera. It was able to save text, and pictures just as the article described. So far this has worked for me in the past couple of days. What browser does everybody else use besides IE, Firefox, and Netscape?
