No. If they're all linked from some common point, you won't need to
worry about it--htdig will follow all links from the start_url and
find them. If they aren't linked, you can set them all in the
start_url attribute.

Sure. Of course you don't need to put anything for "entire site," but
that won't hurt.

No problem. It indexes through the web. So if they look the same to a
web browser, htdig won't know the difference when it indexes.
