It's the point at which the three altitudes of a triangle intersect. Altitudes are lines which intersect with both the vertex of a triangle and the middle of the side of the triangle opposite to that vertex, as shown in this diagram:|dw:1331594454196:dw|

So, the orthocenter would appear as so in an equilateral triangle:|dw:1331594531392:dw|

not quite sure i agree with the definition of altitude you provided... The altitude is a line drawn from one vertex of the triangle to the line containing the opposite side that is perpendicular to the line i.e.
|dw:1331594718807:dw|.
