       That's the simplest method  ;-)

       By not following this simple method, the images which have been
embedded, with whatever, might not paste -
            I guess due to whatever has been embedded  ???  ;-)

Hi :)
It 'should' work (but the difference but what 'should be' and "what is" is
often huge ime in life generally.

Perhaps at the web-page try
File - "Save page"
and save into a sub-folder.  That should create 1 sub-sub-folder with all
the images in and an html file that refers to those images.  Problem is
that once you try moving that html file, even if you move the accompanying
folder then the links break because the html references are "absolute"
instead of the more sensible "relative" pathnames.

If you right-click on the html page document and "Open with" a text-editor
(preferably NOT notepad because it doesn't do colour-coding to make it
easier to see but almost all other text-editors do very pretty colours to
help figure out the coding).  Hopefully it should be reasonably easy to
figure out what to change the
to more like
and if that works then search&replace to get rid of all that first bit out
of every link.

Alternatively, if there are only a few images, then it might be easier to
just drag each image off the website and into a  folder on your machine and
then from there drag them into the right place in the Odf document.

I'm not sure why i am so hooked on trying to solve everything with a
text-editor today!  It's often not easier unless you've already done it
before, in which case the question is less likely to arise anyway :(

Dear Sir,
I am unable to copy and paste the web pages in libre writer.
i am trying to copy a web site information into libre office and the
do not load , in place of images I only see the links to images and when I
try to break links the images still do not load.
Images only load when I connect to Internet, but I want to save files so
that I can use them while I am off-line.
Kindly provide me solution for the same.
I have tried it on libre office 4.3 on windows xp, and 7 also on ubuntu
12.10 in libre

Thanks & regards:
