( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have been trying to write a code for my project wherein i need to go to a website search for sequences related to mouse strains and save the data on resulting page in a text file.Earlier i was trying to use Mechanize but then after reading I realized it is not good with javascripts. So i am using WWW::Mechanize::Firefox.

Well, there is more than one INPUT TYPE=Button with a value of ">>"

A better idea would be to match against onClick attribute

or complain to whomever programmed that page to add ID's or name's to each button, they have a contact form

or use some bioperl module to access that page, because data appears available for download and http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Gbrowse says it uses Gbrowse, surely there must be an interface for scraping Gbrowse already :)
