Conditional comments are a way to hide HTML code within a comment so that it is only interpreted by Internet Explorer (or certain versions of that browser).

It is often used in modern web design as a way of working around flaws in older versions of that browser, see the below example.

However, since Wget does not interpret conditional comments this leads to problems when Wget is used to save a static copy of a page employing them (using the above example the file "ie6fix.css" would not be downloaded).

It would be great if support for conditional comments could be added to Wget (possibly enabled via a command line argument).

For more information on conditional comments see http://www.quirksmode.org/css/condcom.html

Thank you for making Wget an awesome tool.
