Read wget's man page -- with the appropriate options it will do those
things.  Try something like:

  wget --mirror --no-parent --cookies=on --convert-links --page-requisites 

Note: There are occasions where wget will not pull down the CSS
file.  I've suspected it has to do with how the file is referenced
(eg @import is not retrieved) but I've not checked.
