I wouldn't use Javascript for getting at the text:

print $mech->text

Alternatively, if you're really interested in the textContent of a specific element, use

print $element->{textContent}

Thanks to MozRepl::RemoteObject, almost all stuff you can get at by Javascript, you can get at by using Perl.

#!perl -w use strict; use WWW::Mechanize::Firefox::DSL; get ''; print text

    Thanks :) The javascript was just proof of concept for the correct DOM incantation ... I have never actually used WWW::Mechanize::Firefox :)
