    Hi Friends,

    I know that a lot of know webdesign and building. Was hoping someone could help me with a Question.

    I see some sites that i would like to copy but i don't have access to the CSS.
    1. Is there anyway to Rip the site without paying someone to do the CSS?
    2. Is there another quick and dirty way to copy the basic layout of the site?

    Here is the site i am looking at
    Replace COBRA Health Insurance | Health Insurance Quotes

    ...Any Help you can give is greatly appreciated.

    Really looking for a scrapper that can basically get the general layout of site (and more if possible).

    thanks in advance

    The style is there it's just an external file under style.css

    Like mentioned above you can use httrack or save the web page. In firefox just save the page and select save webpage complete. To get all of the images I use an image downloader plugin for firefox.

    I noticed a video on Outwit where the user was just grabbing the data....and not the site.

    ...one more question "do scraping programs also copy website(s)?"
