If you view the page you get from running:

wget -x -p -k wget.addictivecode.org

You'll notice that while most of the prerequisites are properly fetched, there's still a few inline images (the ones used by the wiki to indicate external links and the like) that are not fetched.

These images are specified by a deeper CSS link, specifically:

Wget currently will only follow prerequisites up to a depth of two. Obviously for this case it wasn't sufficient. It might not be appropriate to follow prereqs up to infinite depth; then again, maybe it would be. It should probably be configurable.
