You know just another thought I do alot of things under windows and I have had some really funky things happen when 
saving web pages under it. ASP.Net Pages will do some funky things when saved even as a .htm file on another OS like CentOS. I 
have that. problem alot. I use firefox exclusively. This also applies to Cold Fusion Markup Pages and Java Web Apps.  Believe it or not CSS could be the 
major culprit to it as CSS code for one site need two different CSS bases to pull the layout from. Another thought gzip compression
could be causing it. As in when it gets to the browser it is not expanding all the way.

What kind of wget command are you using?
