Hi Matthew

That sounds like a good idea, getting Firefox to do the screen scraping.  But I was hoping there was a published URL.

I've found this, which might help.  At least it's something I can point a script at to download.  (I like to give my data tables provenance.)

Many thanks


Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

In Firefox for the Mac I was able to save the page as a text file.  In the Save... dialog I chose Text as the format.  Is that suitable for you?

Best,
Matthew

Hi

Is this table available as a plain text file.  Or do I have to resort to screen scraping?

I didn't find anything useful here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_XML_and_HTML_character_entity_references#External_links

Best regards
