    When I want to zip my HTML file my pictures will not show up, and when I upload it to AlterVista they don't show up either. Is there something I'm doing wrong with my language or something else?

    Hi aruss2828, and welcome to TSG.

    HTML files do not contain the actual images that are displayed on an HTML coded web page. The files only contain links to the images and the web browser puts them together to make the displayed page.

    You're welcome.

    FYI, if you are trying to save a complete web page in a web browser like Firefox it has an option to save a page as "Web Page, complete (*htm, *html)". It saves both the original HTML file and also all of the files needed properly display the page in a folder. The links in the saved HTML file are adjusted to point to the local folder contents. If you do the Web page complete Save as to a new folder, the HTML file will be inside the folder and the support files will be in a sub-folder. You can then Zip the entire folder.

    I have attached a Zip file of the Firefox saved version of this page as an example.
