"web archives" are intended to be "entities" - Safari now (finally)
offers them also.
They primarily capture what is stored in the browser cache as a file
so that the images and such are retained, not merely the text.
The technique is not even close to that of resource forks.
So, what happens when a Mac file is FTP'ed? Is it possible to copy
the resource file separately? Does it get copied automatically?

If you look at a "Mac" file system from another OS, you will see the
resource forks as some construct. If I remember correctly under NFS,
they are ._<filename> where <filename> is the same as the main data
