First, ensure that you are using a recent HTTrack release 
(such as the latest 3.32-3) ; as previous releases had 
several parsing problems.

Second, remember that some sites might not be easily 
downloadable, especially those who uses extensive 
javascripting or flash - popular sites like yahoo may use 
such tricks. Also, some other sites may filter the user-
agent, or use robots.txt rules. (Ensure that you don't use 
too aggressive download settings when making test projects)

At last, ensure that the filtering rules are okay for the 
sites you are downloading. For example, if you do:
and if associated images are located in:

.. then the associated images will NOT be downloaded by 
default, because the hosts are different ( and

It then might be necessary to use something like:

httrack '+*.gif' '+*.jpg' '+*.png' '+*.css' '+*.j

Similarly, if you also need to download, use:

httrack '*' '+*.gif' '+*.jpg' '+*.
png' '+*.css' '+*.js'

Depending on the site(s) and associated files you want to 
include, you'll have to define proper scan rules.

With these advices, you should be able to handle most 
sites - but some of them might not be downloadable anyway.
