Just wondering if there was a way to download an entire website for offline reading? Can you do it on a mac (I have a mac)?

Similar to how Reading List works on apple products, except with an entire website in one go with the website being operational ie. all the links working.

I know there is a piece of software called site sucker, which enables you to save every webpage on the website, but that's just as a list of html files, I was wondering if there was a way to do save them such that the website is still operational and all hyperlinks between pages still work? FYI I was thinking of downloading wikipedia.

wget.

Though if you are thinking of downloading Wikipedia, you better have a few petabytes of space! It's ~44GB text only (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...abase_download).
