Only if it is a simple website.  If it is using a server language like ASP or PHP, you will need a web server.  If it is using a database, you will also need the database server.

Hi

HTTrack is a nice tool to copy a website locally but yes, it will only work if it is a simple static website.

When you use HTTrack on a dynamic site, it will treat each dynamic page as a static page just as a google/bing spider would.   It is PC only and not Mac.

No, HTTRack comes in versions for Windows and Linux.  From http://www.httrack.com/ 

WinHTTrack is the Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Seven release of HTTrack, and WebHTTrack the Linux/Unix/BSD release.
WebHTTrack will probably work on a Mac.
