(I was just looking at the bug list, and IMHO this may be a duplicate of http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?27303)

Many web site emit a 404 error accompanied with page data specifying details about possible remedies.

Wget currently does not output this page data.

For documentational purposes, I need it sometimes.

Thus, I suggest to add an "ignore http errors and ouput the page data if any is sent" switch to wgets command line. If I only was too stupid to find it in the man page, and it is already there, I apologize, and kindly ask for a hint.

Thank you.
