I did use a recursive wget, the exact commandline I used but it probably
was something like

    wget -r -p -np (-L)

The local copy I have does contain only one css file:


But I do not think it is very important to get this right.

For example change:

    The _Objective-C Home Page_.

    A good history of Objective-C and comparison with other languages.

    The book _Object-Oriented Programming : An Evolutionary Approach_

    By Brad J. Cox and Andrew J. Novobilski. The page also has a interview with 
Brad Cox and other information.

to something like:
