Default can't save html /css website !!

Hi !

I went to this site :
and I tried to save this site by using my IE's File ->Save as option.

But when I look at the saved version on my hard-disk. It does not show it in proper design. Header - image does not come up and all.

I am wondering if it is possible to save the page with all the related files.

Download Firefox, it has a "save complete webpage" feature that saves all the CSS, images etc. in a directory with the page itself.

I don't know if IE does this (or is supposed to do it, rather) but IE is generally a lot buggier than Firefox. Firefox has its bugs too, though, and I've never tried this feature.

Let me know how it goes,

Another option, is something that I like doing at times.

If I want to see the CSS file on a website and I dont want to do the File->Save As through IE, I just Right-CLick -> View Source and do a search for:

Find: <link rel="stylesheet"

or whatever, as long as I find the stylesheet, once I see the filename I enter it into the address bar, and it starts downloading the .css file.

so, if you found:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="\css\style.css" type="text/css">

I would type into the address bar:


Usually one of those ways does it.
If fact the right address at this point is:
