Hi, everybody
I have a tough task on hand to tackle. I am trying to write a script to
automate the process of extracting the news items from Dow Jones news
service. However, all the pages use javascript to execute the form
submission. To see what I mean, go to http://djnewsplus.com and take a
look at the login page. I guess this is their way of fending off scripting
attack! Is there anyway  to beat the defense?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Alan
