( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
This looks exactly like what i need, but being a bit of a perl novice I'm still not able to use this advice as I'd like.

I am trying to write a web page that will allow the surfer to enter a url, fetch the page content, then process the content (partially translate it into German**.), and produce a new copy of the now modified page. This would be fine if all the pages the surfer wanted were behind the university firewall were my proto-script lives. Of course, I want them to be able to access the entire web. If anyone could explain why the LWP::UserAgent method below doesn't solve my problem I'd be very grateful.
