Hi All,

I'm trying to create a mirror of a website by using wget. It works pretty well on most pages. The HTML of the problem pages tries to include css files which were not downloaded by wget. What is the easiest way to solve this? See the code below.
<style type="text/css" media="screen">@import "/path/file.css";</style>

I use the code below. The idea of the strange base-url is that I could string-replace it later. However it appears nowhere, and it doesn't seem relevant.
wget --base="{{__base-url__}}" \
     --convert-links \
     -i urls.txt \
     --user-agent="Firefox faker for migration" \
     --directory-prefix ~/public_html/migratie \
     --mirror \
     --save-headers \
     --limit-rate=45k \
     -N \
     -o wget.log \
     --page-requisites \
     --cache=off \
     --exclude-directories=foo,bar

Nobody seems to know a solution. I chose to give the points to someone who doesn't pretend to have one.
