What's the best way to download several hundred articles (including images) from Wikipedia for offline reading?

I want a local copy of Wikipedia's articles on networking protocols so I can read them without Internet access (e.g. on a plane). This totals about 300 articles — too many to download manually with a browser and not nearly enough to warrant downloading the whole static archive. Besides, the static archive lacks pictures, and the diagrams in these articles are pretty important.
Using a tool like curl or wget would be perfect (and I know how to use them), but I want to respect their request not to
do it that way.
Any ideas on the best approach to download a few hundred complete articles?
