Hello

I'm trying to use wget to mirror website with static content.

wget -r www.site.zyx

It will download all files from the webpage, except those linked to from within .css files.

What am i doing wrong?

I tried the -m switch.. same problem.
wget does not look into the .css files it gets to check wether they are linking to other files or not.

This was fixed in this April.
