Saving a Web Page

This problem annoys me, so I know that I must be doing something wrong:
I create a Desktop Folder called "TechReviews" Fine. I then peruse my favorite tech sites on the Web, such as E.E., and, finding a page I like I go to File, Save As, then to the folder, in this case "TechReviews".
But, I end up with 2 subfolders for each save!!
One, the yellow one, seems to have most of the silly graphics for the page, and the other, marked with an Internet Explorer "E" is the only thing I can click on, and, it looks weird when opened... as though it needs the graphics of the other folder associated with that specific page.
What is the proper way to save a Web page to a file to be able to view it like it looks on the Web?

Thanks

I believe that one way to do this would be to download the page itself (saved as .html of course) then download the pictures.  You would then have to manually edit the locally save web page and point the <img src> tag to your locally saved images.

Save as file type ".mht" which all pic will archive with the webpage in one file.
This is the common way for saving html, asp.
This is another story if you wanna save webpage with javascript or php.
