[jawsscripts] Re: automating commands to extract info from web site?

Well I realize that I could just copy the following site into the run dialog
http://barchart.com/opinions/stocks/xxxx
and replace xxxx with a stock symbol that I wish to research.  I think I 
will do this but I would like to become more familiar with automating so I 
might just do for the experience.  I guess I'll decide tomorrow.
I will look into tools and suggestions that all gave to me.
Ann
