Making a HTML/PHP static copy of a perch site.

Not sure if this is at all possible but if it is I'm sure someone here knows how! We are creating a new site and moving to a new server for an existing client.

To save us a lot of work we want to make a copy static HTML or PHP copy of the existing site and upload it to the new server, while we develop the new site on a subdomain. Is there anyway to achieve this?

Are any parts of the site dynamic?

No, it's a very simple site.

Thanks Drew

I tested two of the mac apps listed, without any luck. But I'll try the windows options later, and update if any of them works.
