It should "just work". Having no knowledge of how your Zope
site is put together, I for one have no idea what could be wrong.
wget has a lot of options that are worth exploring.
For producing a locally browsable static
copy of zope and CMF content, I eventually settled on this,
which changes some file extensions and rewrites links to point
to the local version:
wget -nc -r -l8 -p -nH --no-parent --convert-links --html-extension
It's not perfect, as for a folder named "foo" you may end up with both
foo.html and foo/index_html.html, both having the same content.
It also helps if you don't have runaway URLs:
i.e. relative links in your navigation that lead to wget traversing
the same object over and over with URLs like

Maybe some work on robots.txt could help with this?
