I have used w3mir
Both have shortcomings, but I have downloaded gigabytes of HTML-files
with the programs.
With w3mir (and some home made programs) I have built a fully automatic
system for downloading all the new articles each day in 10 Norwegian
newspapers in the Web, stripping HTML-codes, indexing the text (with IMS
CWB) and making the total text searchable through a Web-browser (with a
passwd due to copyright reasons). I will present this project at LREC in
Athens later this year.
