Webpage with Pictures to MOBI or EPUB

I've not dealt with any webpage conversions. I'm new to this. A friend of mine is creating an online magazine and wants to sell some articles on Amazon.

I explained the easiest way to convert a book is to send it to his Kindle address. the problem he is having is that his books don't include the pictures linked via HTML.

But now he is converting webpages. I have Calibre and I've learned some easy stuff like converting my ebooks to different formats.

Do i need to Zip the HTML and import it as a Zipped file to be able to include the pictures from a web page into an eBook?

I did a search but i could not find any relevant articles.

Thanks!

I think the fist step is "save Page As" in a Browser. This saves the current page AND a folder with the all the 'accessories' :P .
Then Zip the Page and folder together (to keep them tat way). Calibre can deal with the Zipped package.
