Yeah, I suddunly thuoght about the IE pack:

$strURL = "http://something.com"
$objIE = _IECreate($strURL) ;Open IE with $strURL as the web page
$objIEBody = _IEBodyReadText($objIE)    ;Read the text between the <BODY> tags
_IEQuit($objIE) ; Quit the instance of IE
FileWrite("C:\\Temp\test2.txt", $objIEBody) ;Write the body text to a file

Thanks.
