If you wish to insert license information into HTML pages (online or offline), here are some pointers (modify these to reflect the license you're actually using):

Use the link element's "copyright" rel value to point to the license like so:

   <link rel="copyright" type="text/html" href="" />

Use the "copyright" meta value like so:

   <meta name="copyright" content="This work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 License. To view a copy of this license, visit or send a letter to Creative Commons, 543 Howard Street, 5th Floor, San Francisco, California, 94105, USA." />

Add RDF data in a comment somewhere in your page:

   <rdf:RDF xmlns="" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:rdf="">
       <Work rdf:about="">
           <license rdf:resource="" />
           <dc:type rdf:resource="" />
       <License rdf:about="">
           <permits rdf:resource=""/>
           <requires rdf:resource=""/>
           <requires rdf:resource=""/>
           <requires rdf:resource=""/>

(These are all in addition to the text and image generated by the license selection process.)
