The following is from today's TidBits newsletter:

****************************
   The Mac OS 8.6 Scripting Additions folder contains a tiny
   application called URL Access Scripting, which enables any OSA
   script to transfer data to and from the Internet. This simple
   AppleScript script downloads the TidBITS home page to a file you
   specify.

    set newFile to (new file)
    tell application "URL Access Scripting"
      activate
      download "http://www.tidbits.com/" to newFile with progress
      quit
    end tell

   This script (which works only under Mac OS 8.6) prompts you to
   create a new file, then displays a progress dialog as URL Access
   Scripting connects to our Web server, downloads the page, and
   saves it to the file you specified.

****************************
Does anyone know how to emulate this script from FB (II or ^3)?

Just curious about what's involved....

Cheers,
