Thanks all.  It took a few tries to limit what I got to what I wanted, 
but all is well.

I tried to use wget's -D switch to limit what I got but had no luck.  It 
appears (and is documented) to limit domains.  I tried to use it to 
limit what directories were accessed within a domain, and the result was 
the single page specified in the command.
