in reply to Saving data from a web page?

I don't have the answer, but it looks like I may can shed some light on what it is you're looking for, so other more-knowledgable monks can help you.

It seems you want the output of a rendered Web page that was put together with JavaScript. If Lynx supported JavaScript, you could call it with the "-dump" argument to get the rendered page. You may want to check out the documentation on whatever Web browser you have on your system and see if there's a command-line interface to get similar output.

As a side note, I hope you use this power for good - e-mail harvesters could use this method to get JavaScript-protected e-mail addresses.
