help with wget for offline webpages (CSS?)


Okay so I've been using wget to download websites to my computer without a hitch for a while now. However, I ran across a page that doesn't work with my current commands. Basically there's some CSS or something fancy that makes the website render nicer than the html that wget is downloading. Ideas?

wget --directory-prefix=/home/name/Documents/websites/ --page-requisites --convert-links

the webpage in question is http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/

wget is good for direct downloads, but it does have its limitations. For complex websites, I recommend using httrack instead. It's a bit more complicated to use, but it's specifically geared towards mirroring websites. It might handle your current situation better.
