Web Site Downloader is an excellent program for downloading entire websites for offline browsing. This is what WCCL say on their site:
"Download an entire Web site - including images, sounds and video.

Looking to browse your Web sites offline? Maybe there's an online image library you would like to store on your hard disk? Perhaps you want to make your corporate site available on an easily-distributable CD? Then you need Web Site Downloader!

Download today to...
Extract Entire Sites - just three simple clicks to download an entire web site
Grab images, video and audio - easily select exactly what you wish to save
Customize your results - specify recursion levels, and more advanced settings
Lightning-fast downloads - uses 8 simultaneous connections for super-fast operation

They also say:
"Best of all, Web Site Downloader is FREE! All you pay is a one-off fee of $14.95 (approximately 8.95 or 11.95 Euros) to cover distribution and support." and that is correct. The software is actually GPL and totally free and available from the author's site under the name Website Copier v 3.33 so if you want to waste $14.95 downloading a program that is totally free please be my guest, personally I prefer the original author's version (Xavier Roche) who also has a lively forum giving help to one and all again for free ( help at Web Site Downloader aims to respond within 1 business day).

It's a dilemma isn't it, get the program and support for free plus no "distribution" charges", or pay WCCL $14.95 for the same thing. It's up to you.
