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

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