I interact with copier interfaces quite a lot and the process of backing up the data involves going through various pages and typing what I see there into a text file. I have always thought it would be great to write an app that can do it for me, but I have never been able to scrape anything more than the HTML text displayed on the page.

I will have to look into ways to use Javascript to do it. If it requires already knowing what the values are though, I'm afraid I might meet with unsurpassable difficluty.

the short answer is "yes", but it can be more complicated as it may require
some javascript execution to pull the data from the server.  It depends on
the site you are scraping.  You can also (possibly) use a service that can
yank that for you.
