As Dave asked, are you sure you need post? That is, are you sure
it is a web page you are seeing? An HTTP authorization request
will create a dialog box on your browser, but it is not a web
page. It will typically be a boring little dialog box with site
and realm data displayed and with text boxes for name and password.
If it is a Basic Authorization request, see if you can build a
header line and add it to the headers.
If it is a post, take care to get the encoding right. You can use
the Rev functions, but they are not complete for a post.
