> try http://www.scrubyt.org - great ruby toolkit for webscraping

Yeah, scRUBYt! is really great and all, but currently it has one major 
shortcoming from the viewpoint of verizon scraping: it is built on 
WWW::Mechanize, which can not handle javascript/AJAX and it seems the 
verizon page has plenty of those.

FireWatir is just being integrated into scRUBYt! and scraping such a 
site won't be a problem once it will be finished - however, until then I 
would suggest to use either Watir or FireWatir to handle the AJAXy stuff.

Cheers,
Peter
