:-) Yes, there is an other :-))

Ok, I will try to explain. ... Somewhere in the Web, there is a Website, out
of the world of zope:-), that provides a form with a submit button. this
form passes some arguments with the syntax:
<input type="hidden" name="x" value="y"> ...

If you klick on submit button, you get displayed some pictures. so far so
good ...

I want to create a zope application, that automatically gets the source of
this result page, extracts the urls of the picutres and finally uploads
these pictures into my zopeserver.

The problem is, that it is not possible to pass the variables in the url
like this:

So I am looking for a way of being able to handle the source code of this
result. Extraction of the urls is not a problem.

Thanks for your interest ...
