Hi Dave, 

Yes, I agree.

In this instance, I see it mainly as a Mozilla bug in 'save web page'; URIs in html are rewritten and resources (images, etc) saved locally, but URIs in CSS (images, fonts, etc) are not rewritten and the referenced resources are not saved.

Can anyone point out an existing bugzilla on this, before I create a new, possibly duplicate one, on that?
