Hi

(short form of a post I made yesterday that got no love, I suspect it'
sbecuase I was long winded)

Nutshell if I use open URI (and Hpricot) to download a web page and
'scrape' all the images to write them to my local disk dynamic images
always have improper format (Size 0) but static images are fine.

Example would be : <img
src="http://myserver:8080/Someservlet?name=blah&param=value&etc=etc">

Whether I copy/paste this URL in another browser or use open URI to
"get" the image I get an an error of:

XML Parsing Error: no element found
Location: http://myserver:8080/Someservlet?name=blah&param=value&etc=etc
Line Number 1, Column 1:

BUT, this image is displayed PERFECTLY in the html.

How can I get this image to download? (I suspect it's the mime type
being set on the server side but I am not 100% sure)
