this is almost possible with lynx. You can set lynx to collect URLs
from a given starting point and dump them to files (SSI expanded thanks to

However, I say "almost" because I'm not aware of flags to keep lynx within
a narrow enough region of the web to make this safe.

I mention this in the hope that someone has worked out how to do it.

An alternative is to ask lynx to -source each page individually. That will
save the HTML (+ expanded SSI) to a file; but y'all knew that.
