If you want to save a webpage to your computer, you should either save them as single HTML files (does not save graphics) or complete pages (saves text and graphics) by using
File -> Save As option
If you save the page using the option ‘webpage HTML only’, only the current page will be saved. However, items that are embedded in web pages will have to be saved manually. For example, if a webpage plays a MIDI file or has a Flash or Java animation, then the particular file will have to be saved manually after looking for them in c:\windows\temporary internet files (by entering the file type as .swf or .mid, etc.)
If you save the page using ‘webpage complete’, the current page will be saved in its entirety including graphics. If you use the ‘web archive’ option, it saves a snapshot of the current page in MIME format. This is much like the ‘webpage complete’ option but is available only if you have Outlook Express 5 or a later version.
The ‘text only’ option saves only the text on the current page.
