i assume that would export a whole page?  probably not a good idea for
class grades.  :-)

hmmm... maybe.  i had already considered parsing XML output, but was
hoping to get something higher level.  i guess i have a better shot at
cooking up something to parse tab delimited files in under 60 minutes
than i do XML data (which i've never worked on).  maybe tab delimited
and php wouldn't be a bad idea, although i admit i was hoping for
something a bit higher level.

unfortunately, i don't have time to hack right now.  if anything, i kind
of need to just plug in and use...
