I can save it and it works just fine.
If I save it as "web page complete". IO have a sub directory with all
If I save it as "web page HTML only", I get no sub directories, but all
the photos show on the stored e-bay page.
Looks like a great car and a heck of a deal!
This is very simple to do. If you have Firefox, install two add-ons,
the page and downthemall allows you to download all media files of a
specific type in one action.
As a test, I just downloaded all 61 pictures of the car to my system.
If you want to post an email address, I can send tem to you, as a zip,
via a file transfer service, OR, if you have access to binary groups
and know how to deal with binary files, I can upload the zip to a
group such as alt.binaries.test.
Let me know if you want them and how you would like to get them.

As you may have read, not using Complete, using the second choice, got
me the pictures, so thank you for the generous offer but I have them
I was away all day yesterday, getting the car, so I haven't looked at
earlier subdirectories if there are any.
The car seems quite good. More in another post.

I explain the terms I use in the next section, but first, I hate to say
this: I tried twice using Complete before I posted my question, and it
didnt' work either time, but now it seems to be working, exactly the
same as without complete, that is the text is all the same height.
It was in another post, in responsse to someone, althought conceivably
he had removed the ng you're reading and I didn't notice that and didn't
put it back. I was taught that it is impolite to remove a newsgroup
from the dist. list without saying so in the text, but when I pointed
that out, a couple people insisted it was okay to do that. I still
think it is rude, but I don't bring it up anymore.
In Firefox when you use Save Page As, there are 4 choices for Save as
Type, from top to bottom in the drop-down list:
Web Page Complete (*.htm,*.html);
Web Page, HTML Only (*.htm,*.html);
All files (*.*)
I'm sure text won't work most of the time, but I havent' tested All
Files yet. Maybe that means the files are saved but not in a way that
the webpage can be redisplayed?
And I've been using the first one, because it sounds more.... complete.
Yet in this case HTML only saved the photos, but didn't save what makes
the text more stylized, which I thought was in the html. Instead all
the text came out the same size, though some was bold and a little was
red (but iiuc those first level modifications preceded html and don't
Yeah, deleting them is fine. Thanks for the efforts.
If there was a followup header, I let GNUS do it's default action.
Otherwise GNUS will reply to all groups.
site on that page. Not surprised the font rendering changed
with the saved pages. Perhaps the design is such that it only works
when invoked from the font hosting site.
Personally, I despise sites messing with the fonts I've chosen and
I set my preferences accordingly.
I suppose someone more adept at all the various operating
systems and software versions will have a better answer but
I just right-click each image and select "save as". You
might find a date useful for a group of images such as
1706A.jpg, 1706B.jpg etc.

Forgot that it's 60 pics. I'd ask the seller if he can give them to Micky when he picks the car up. He could bring a USB flash or his phone with USB cable, SD card, whatever works. Or seller could burn a DVD or put them up at a hosting site.
Use the browser print option and print to PDF.
If you don't have a PDF print, download "cutePDF", install and select it
instead of your actual printer. It's basically a PDF converter and can
save ANY document or file as a PDF. Therefore, print the Ebay webpage as
a PDF and it'll save the entire content as it is. Then you can actually
print the file to your printer whenever you want to take the paperwork
In the Firefox "Save As" dialog on the lower right you have choices:
Web Page complete
Web Page HTML only
The Web Page complete option saves the web page HTML file with all the
links in the web page adjusted to use a local folder with the same name
as the HTML file. Like this:
Directory AAS_files <== folder
File AAS.html <== original page with links adjusted
All the images should be somewhere in that directory.
If you used some other option, someone attempting to help would need to
know what you did.

Good point. But I did use Web Page Complete, .
But you still solved the problem for me, because I tried Web Page HTML
only and I got all the pictures, and afaicr, I got all the text too!!
Yes I got all the text but I see the text is less sytlized. It has some
bold and italics and some text in red, but all the letters are the same
size -- Which is actually good some of the time because in the original
some words from Ebay were overlaping other words.
And the picture in the upper left works too. The row at the bottom of
it scrolls and I can click on any of them to see it.
Now I have to go back and try this with google satellite view!!! No, it
didn't help. Now the page comes back all white, instead of almost all
black. But one out of two is great!!
/2004 Chrysler Sebring LXi | eBay_files/eBayISAPI_data contains the
reasonable-size pictures. Saving as web page complete works like a
charm, although for some reason firefox didn't like the name of the
I've enjoyed just about as much of this as I can stand.
Of course it doesn't work.
The images on maps.google.com are drawn interactively by (my guess)
Use the technique I gave you in another post.
You need to use software that grabs the window contents as an image.
