Images disappear upon addition of

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I saved the following web page from IE6 under Win XP Pro
using Save As / Web page, HTML:

I ripped out all the <script ...>...</script> sections
and I ripped out the <iframe> ... </iframe>
So far so good - the images and the text show.

Now usually when I save a page, I take out IE's saved from injection
and add
<base href="http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/18/science/18aging.html?
so that I know where I got it from, and typically this is no problem.

In this case, however, the images go away, and that is puzzling to me.
Same thing happens under FF 1.5
Can anyone see why that might be happening?
(Presumably, it's also why the font of the text gets altered.)

You might, we can't.

Go to a broken image, right-click and look at Properties...  What URL
is the browser trying to retrieve the image from? Does this make any
sense? Does it at least explain the error?

Use Firefox|SeaMonkey its save webpage complete puts all the remote
files in a linked folder locally and can be viewed when completely offline.

Take care,

I tried to replicate this problem, and it seems that
the underlying page has changed, and I cannot repeat
the error in the same way.
So I don't know if it was a cacheing issue, or something else.
