Hi David,

I can't help you with the first question, as I dont
have a MacOS X computer. But for your scripting
question: check out the 'put URL xxx into URL yyy'
construction.
Example:
  put URL "http://www.apple.com/" into URL \
    "binfile:" & cd fld "savePath"

That should do the trick.

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
