How save website locally?

How can I save a HTML website (EXACTLY) that is on the internet to my local machine? I've tried to use the browser to save the pages but there are a few visual "quirks" and it stores the images, etc... in individual folders for each page. Is there a free program to do it?

By the way, it's a legit request. My client got permission from the site owner to "clone" it as the basis for his website (because he is a product distributor for the sites owner.)

HTtrack will do exactly what you want.

http://www.httrack.com

It copies a site really well and stays true to how it's built.

If he got the rights, get the file from the server itself. :)

Your need is offline browser.
Offline browser is a software, it used to save all or part of a Web site onto your hard drive(local system).

Some of the Offline browser is,

* BackStreet Browser
* WinHTTrack Website Copier
* SurfOffline
* PageNest
* Web Copier

for more details, review these on google and use it.

Hi Robert,
there are set of web downloaders that will let you download a full site like the one frankly mentioned nut if you needed an exact clone you'd better get a copy from the FTP since this will be the only untouched exact copy
the only downside to website cloners that they tend to modify the structure, file references links etc.. Since an uploaded site would be different way from just file browsing
local files, especially if there were any dynamic or cms parts
what I usually do in such cases, if the site didn't have many   Pages/files I use firefox view source, copy and paste it then download the scripts and css files manually with same structure, might take me a bit longer especially at first but it ensures I have an untouched copy of the pages

Any idea how to make it store the images locally? I checked the source and it's pointing to the www address for the images. Thanks.
