Hi,

The scoops generates a file from the original full webpage, for example:
http://www.palmgear.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=software.showsoftware&Partner REF=&catid=0&area=software.newproducts25&searchtit le=Last%2025%20New%20Software%20Titles&searchterm= &step=1&orderby=modificationdate&direction=asc&use rid=0&prodid=80848
(the moddle frame)
