Just add --no-modified-since and Wget behaves as wanted.

I work around the problem by deleting everything prior. This is not super satisfying, but sufficient for my case.

A big nuisance here is that I need to download some pages and only after that know some other pages that I need to download, but I have a fix for that.
So, at least for me I could work around it.

What has changed between v16 and v18 that could break this?

The first time, the file will just download and no conversion takes place.

The second call to wget doesn't download any file (because of 304 answer) but tries to modify both ! This is wrong - as at least the .js file is neither an html nor a css file.

If you add --no-modified-since to the second call, the problem is gone. It looks like the 304 response does not contain a Content-Type - and I guess the default for Wget is text/html then.

To reproduce:

wget -mk http://steamnet.de/wget_broken_in_18/
wget -mk http://steamnet.de/wget_broken_in_18/

will produce a file "js/script.js" that looks like this:

> someFunc=function(C){L=J('<a href="script.js#"></a>')}; 

but it should look like this:

> someFunc=function(C){L=J('<a href="#"></a>')}; 

This worked in Version 16

I attached the files. script.js is how it should look like and does look like in version 16. script_broken.js is how it looks like in version 18.
