Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That is not possible dude.
you can't do that..until & unless you make changes to the html code(path's for the pictures should be local) to view the page as online & even you have to save the pictures in you machine.
The easiest way to save a "complete" page is to use the Mozilla Archive Format extension. This saves and bundles everything up into a zip archive (with a .maff extension) that can be opened by any browser that has the add-on installed. Or it can be unzipped and viewed directly in any browser.
I just did this using firefox on the webpage you included in your original query and it worked fine. If you hadn't loaded the entire web pages, allowed all scripts to run, etc; i.e. if some images were not showing when you performed your save, then you won't see those images in the saved complete form. Further, you cannot change the name once you save unless you change the name of the folder that is also created. And by the way, the folder created does contain all the embedded content, so it's not merely in that one HTML file, it is also in a same named sub-folder. So if you save complete then copy just the HTML file to somewhere else without also copying the sub-directory matching that web page name, then that's why you're not seeing what you expect.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.

This is the Linux-Newbie section and you are not a newbie and also know that IE is Windows. So if you are using Windows and it wont work for you ask in the appropriate place or even on a Windows IE forum.
Reporting this trhead to recommend it be moved to General or somewhere apart from Linux-*
When saving a webpage, you can choose to save a "complete webpage" in html format, I assume every details in the page will be saved and when you open it later offline, you see exactly what you saw before.
But this is not the case, sometimes it is even difficult to be opened by IE/Firefox, waiting for long time and it opens with missing details, like certain pictures are not shown.
