When you save a Web page in Internet Explorer as Web Page, complete, and then try to view this saved Web page, the page may not be displayed correctly, and you may receive one or more of the following error messages:
To work around this behavior, save the Web page locally by clicking Add to Favorites on the Favorites menu, and then clicking the Make available offline check box to select it.
When you save Web pages, "Web page, complete (*.htm, *.html)" is selected by default. This setting stores the Web page as a relative link and not an absolute link. Relative links use URL paths that indicate the location of an item relative to the current folder, without giving a specific drive or root folder. Absolute links use URL paths that indicate the drive and folder in which to find an associated file.
